Potatoes, PROUD not HUMBLE

 World POtato Congress
May 28, 2012
Potatoes have a massive role to play globally. As well as delicious to eat in all their many forms, they are nutritious and address many of our food security and sustainability challenges, declared Potato Council chairman Allan Stevenson in his opening address at World Potato Congress (Edinburgh, May 27).

“No other traditional staple foodstuff offers so much in terms of vitamins and nutrients,” he added.

Reflecting with pride on Great Britain’s achievements he paid tribute to British Agriculture and its world leadership in sustainable production, noting that the potato sector was at the forefront of technology and was an enviable example of better resource use.
