The Potato Industry Event 2017

This year we exhibited at The Potato Industry Event at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate on the 22nd & 23rd November.

Once every two years the Potato Industry comes together for this unique event giving exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to network with businesses in the growing, handling, processing, and retailing the crop industries.

We shared a stand with Bobcat who showcased the Bobcat skid-steer and telehandler and Broadwater attachments that showcased their wide range of potato industry attachments.

We held a “Guess the Potato” Competition on our stand, which was a great success, asking visitors to guess the variety of potato on show.

The Potatoes on show were –

  • Rooster
  • Desiree
  • King Edward
  • Lady Balfour
  • Maris Piper
  • British Anya
  • 65 potatoes in the bottom drawer

The Winners

We also held another competition to win an Amazon Echo, the winner of this was James Wilcox of Grimme – Congratulations James!

The winner of the Guess the Potato Competition with 6 correct answers and a guess of 52 potatoes was Paul McDonnell of Paul McDonnell Potatoes – Congratulations Paul! –

Your prizes are on their way.

This was a great event for us and we have gained some great contacts within the industry and we look forward to the 2019 event!
