World Potato Congress Inc. Webinar - 'Little Potatoes and TPS: Good Things Come in Small Packages' with Joel VanderSchaaf.

The World Potato Congress is delighted to announce its December 2021 webinar featuring Joel VanderSchaaf, General Manager, Tuberosum Technologies Inc. on December 14, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard time (USA/Canada).

Presentation Outline

Little potatoes are the fastest growing market segment for fresh potatoes in North America and are gaining interest around the world. True Potato Seed (TPS) is a burgeoning technology that has gained significant momentum amongst the potato research community.

How do these two seemingly unrelated developments actually have a synergistic role to play in meeting new market demographics and the challenges of world food security?

Joel VanderSchaaf has been involved in the potato industry for over 20 years, having hands-on experience in almost every stage of the potato industry from breeding, to production, to packing, to marketing.

Working closely with his father, Jacob VanderSchaaf, and sister Angela Santiago, who founded The Little Potato Company (LPC) and Tuberosum Technologies Inc (Tuberosum) in 1995, Joel is helping bring small and specialty potatoes to the North American consumer.

After working at LPC and various production farms affiliated with LPC, Joel began work at Tuberosum in 2009.

He is currently General Manager of Tuberosum and helps facilitate the execution of Tuberosum’s cutting edge breeding programs, research, and variety introduction.
