The Market

Turkey as the intended event location is in an unique geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe and can act as a hub for visitors from Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia. With a positioning as Potato Days Turkey exhibition for potato production in semi-arid regions interested parties from countries like Algeria and Morocco (important suppliers to the European off-season and early potato market) could also be selectively targeted.

The harvested area for potatoes reached 144.706 ha in Turkey (2016) which is similar to the United Kingdom (145.000 ha) and higher than the harvested area in Belgium (93.000 ha). Together with the largest producers in the region Egypt and Iran on 491.069 ha nearly 15 million tons of potatoes (Germany 10 mio t) are produced.

Production intensity varies greatly in the larger region with high intensity for off-season potato production in Jordan, Israel and Turkey in particular. With improved management and technologies many of the producers of the region could increase their yields to serve growing market demands. Potato demand is expected to grow due to new consumption habits – especially for processed products.
