Welcome to the Latin American Potato Association!

The Latin American Potato Association (ALAP) was born in 1977, as a result of a previous organization known as the "Latin American Society of Potato Researchers (SLIP)".

About ALAP

All these actions are aimed to awake the interest for this crop in people, with the certainty of achieving greater well-being in the communities that grow potatoes and in the people who consume it in all its forms.
