Next week (14 & 15 September), the smallest pop-up restaurant will be opened in Amsterdam to put the potato in the spotlight! The restaurant is so small that only one person can go in at a time. Two highly praised chefs will serve a 3 course (potato) menu in 10 minutes.

Last Monday the Dutch Prime Minister spoke praising words about our sector at the opening of the academic year at the 100-year-old Wageningen University:
“ The Netherlands is the largest exporter of seed potatoes in the world. We’re number one in onions, vegetable seeds and ornamental plants. But even more important are the knowledge and technology we export. We lead the world in innovation when it comes to agriculture and food. No wonder National Geographic described the Netherlands last year as ‘the tiny country that feeds the world.' ”
