Durante la mayor parte del siglo XX, Europa fue el líder mundial indiscutible en la producción de patatas.

Aunque ese honor ya ha pasado a Asia, siete países europeos se encuentran entre los diez primeros productores mundiales.

El continente también tiene el nivel más alto de consumo de papa en el mundo (casi 90 kg per cápita al año).

Muchos países de Europa Occidental están pasando del cultivo de la patata a la transformación y producción de tubérculos de semillas para la exportación. (Fuente: Año Internacional de la Patata)
