British Potato 2017 event plots UK role after Brexit

BP2017 Potato Industry Show is a potato gathering from seed to supermarket, taking place November 22 to 23, in the Yorkshire Event Centre, Harrogate, United Kingdom. The British Potato show has taken on an added dimension as the first show since the UK’s decision to fundamentally change its relationship with Europe and its trading focus with the rest of the world. “The challenges and opportunities of Brexit, the global role for UK seed and technical lessons from around the world, all feature strongly in the official seminar program at the event,” says show organizer Steve Wellbeloved. Additionally, among the record number of exhibitors – one in five is new to the show – many are showcasing goods and services relevant to global audiences. This trading focus also extends to a special Trade & Innovation Hub, where the UK government will be highlighting its support for agritech, exports and inward investment.
