I wish to welcome you to the Potato News Today web site! Thank you for taking the time to visit the site, and of course to read this page. On this site you should find a no-frills, no-nonsense account of breaking potato news stories from around the world. This site (or blog, as some might call it) is published and maintained by me, Lukie Pieterse.
I am based on the east coast of Canada. Some of you might know that I launched one of the very first “potato-only” news web sites available on the Internet (and that was way back in the early years of the Internet – 1997, to be precise). The site was called Global Potato News.
On Potato News Today you will find summaries of breaking global news stories related to the international potato industry – and also links to the original online sources of these stories. I post these in 5 different languages on the site: English, Dutch, German, French and Spanish. You will find the latest news on this page.
I source hundreds of online news sources daily to find sensible and relevant news stories for publication on the site. If you wish to receive an email alert every time I post a new story to the site, activate the Follow button at the top of the right hand menu, please. An email with a brief summary of the news item and a link to the post will then be sent to your email address.
Feel free to get in touch me me if you have industry specific press releases or any information about the potato industry in your country, company or organization that can potentially be published here. I always appreciate to hear from you folks, no doubt about that!
If you might be interested in outsourcing a potato consultation project, or if your company might want to include a customized potato newsfeed similar to the one on this blog, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options. I will be most happy to listen to your information needs and I am sure we will find a way to accommodate your needs!
I hope you enjoy reading Potato News Today! Feel free to get in touch with me at any time… My resume can be found here: lukie.
With kind wishes from Canada,
