The British Potato Show is gearing up for its return to Harrogate on 22 and 23 November and this year is expecting a record number of trade stands.

Taking place at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate, the event features a seminar programme including technical talks and discussions of current industry topics.

The trade show takes place at a time of year when the potato harvest has typically concluded and preparations for the new year are in motion.

Exhibitors include producers as well as an ever-expanding range of post-harvest businesses.

Visitors to BP2023 will have the opportunity to catch up on everything from varieties to sprout suppression, as well as developments in water treatment, haulage and the very latest in optical sorting and whole crop utilisation.

Delegates will have access to:

  • Some of Europe’s leading potato companies
  • The latest in potato R&D
  • All types of farm, packing and processing machinery
  • New breakthroughs in production and processing
  • Business news and emerging opportunities
  • Buyers, suppliers and advisers from plough to plate

Adding an extra layer of prestige to the event, the National Potato Industry Awards will be held at the Old Swan in Harrogate on Wednesday 22 November, the opening evening of the show.

The awards celebrate excellence and innovation in the potato industry and a guest speaker appearance from Welsh comedian Rod Woodward, following his much-lauded appearance at the last awards ceremony in 2021.
