National Potato Industry Awards

THE 2021 National Potato Industry Awards were presented at a celebratory dinner at the Old Swan, Harrogate on the first night of BP2021 - November 24th, 2021 - with celebrity speaker, comedian Rod Woodward, keeping everyone entertained and handing over the trophies.

It was a great opportunity for everyone in the industry to meet up and enjoy the company of like-minded people from the potato industry, and the mood was even more upbeat than at the 2019 launch event, after seeing so many live events cancelled because of Covid-19 repercussions over the previous 18 months.

Plans are already afoot for the 2023 event, where Rod will be making a welcome return in response to feedback from previous attendees.
