Annual awards nominations invited.
THOSE operating in the US potato growing industry are being asked to nominate a well-deserving member for Potato Person of the Year or the Potato Person for All Seasons awards.
The awards, sponsored by The Packer in conjunction with the National Potato Council, will be presented at the council's Washington Summit awards banquet on February 23rd.
The 2022 Potato Person for All Seasons was Pat Kole, Vice Ppresident of the Idaho Potato Commission, who received the award last February at the National Potato Council's annual meeting and banquet held at the Marriot at Metro Center.
Potato Person of the Year recognises an individual who has gone above and beyond the call of duty during 2022 to further the potato industry. Award winners have devoted a significant amount of time promoting potatoes to consumers and representing the industry on trade missions and in front of regulatory agencies.
Potato Person for All Seasons is a lifetime achievement award that recognizes individuals who have given freely of their time and energy to improve the well-being of the potato industry.
