Now that the wind down of AHDB Potatoes is nearing completion, there is no organisation that represents the interests of the whole potato industry in Great Britain. 

GB Potatoes seeks to “be able to defend the industry from threats, when required, and provide a flexible platform for innovation and growth to help the Great British potato industry thrive.” It proposes to be funded by a modest subscription from members.

GB Potatoes has commissioned a website which is currently under construction (, which will set out its mission and vision for the organisation. 

If you agree with the concept of GB Potatoes, its organisers are saying, “it is very important that you voice your support by emailing There may not be another opportunity.”
