National Potato Industry Awards

THE 2021 National Potato Industry Awards, for which entries are still eligible, will be presented at a celebratory dinner at the Old Swan, Harrogate on the first night of BP2021 - November 24th, 2021 - and many have already booked places in anticipation of seeing the industry achievers receive their trophies, being entertained by a celebrity speaker and generally having a good time networking.

It will be a great opportunity to meet up and enjoy the company of like-minded people from the potato industry, after seeing so many live events cancelled over the past 18 months.

Deadline for award entries is August 24th, 2021 and it's easy to nominate yourself, another individual, or a company - just click here to fill in an online form, or contact organiser Juliet Loiselle at [email protected].

We're looking forward to following up our successful launch event in 2019, and sharing more stand-out achievements from the whole industry on the night.

Having played 77  times for his country as well as playing around the world and for the British and Irish Lions, James retired in 2019 and is now a popular podcaster, presenter and professional DJ. He has appeared a number of times on shows such as I’m a celeb, The chase, A league of their own, question of sport, fighting talk and various other mainstream shows. 

Winners' details for the 2019 event (the first of its kind) were published on our news page and within the January 2020 edition of Potato Review, and we'll be providing similar coverage following this year's event.
