National Potato Industry Awards 2023

HOLD that date!! The 2023 National Potato Industry Awards are now confirmed to take place on the first night of BP2023 - November 22nd, 2023.

Comedian Rod Woodward, who was a huge hit with those who attended the 2021 awards, will be returning as guest speaker, and The British Potato Industry Award, originally inagurated by the British Potato Council and subsequently by the Potato sector of AHDB, will now be awarded alongside the other categories at the biannual event, organised by Potato Review.

The 2021 National Potato Industry Awards were presented at a celebratory dinner at the Old Swan, Harrogate, which will also be the venue for the 2023 awards.

The awards offer 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 in 2021 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 steaming ahead for the 2023 event, and anyone wanting to get involved as a sponsor or contributor can get in touch with Juliet or Hayley via our 'contact us' page. Sponsorship package details are available here.
