BRITISH POTATO 2005 will take place on Nov 30 – Dec 1 next year at the Yorkshire Event Centre, near Harrogate.

Organisers, the British Potato Council, hope it will build on the success of the past two events and have chosen a larger venue to cater for the increased visitor numbers seen in recent years.

“The previous two British Potato events have each attracted around 6,000 visitors from all parts of the supply chain and new exhibitors have helped grow the scope of each event,” said BPC chief executive Helen Priestley.

Some 200 companies covering all aspects of potato production, through to retailing will be exhibiting at the two day event, according to organisers.

There will also be outdoor exhibits and sector specific conferences and workshops.
