The team at Sutton Bridge Crop Storage Research is gearing up to future-proof GB’s potato storage capability by 2020.
Team members will visit and audit at least 250 stores next year, and more in following years, in recognition of continuing storage challenges, said Potato Council director Rob Clayton
Launching the 2014 business plan, he said: “We will provide support for the sector that improves production of potatoes. We will assist industry in promoting potatoes and we will protect the reputation of the sector.”
The Potato Council is also to introduce a R&D strategy to serve until 2020.
