UPDATE: Due to scheduled construction at The Mirage Las Vegas, the National Potato Council moved the location of Potato Expo 2025 to the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 9-10, 2025.


After more than 20 years and numerous legal challenges, the Mexican market was opened to U.S. fresh potatoes in 2022. Nearly two years later, NPC, Potatoes USA, and the industry’s top trade consultants at Bryant Christie, Inc. came together at Potato Expo 2024 to assess where things are, how far they need to go, and the challenges in realizing the potential of this valuable export market.
