You asked and we listened! We’re inundated with queries from spud lovers asking us to showcase a few faces behind our spudnificant royal family. One such event shows the unity and relentless strides of the potato industry that is hard at work 24/7.
Potato Nation was present at the Potato Industry Forum (PIF) 2022 held on 26 April 2022 at Woodhill Country Estate in Pretoria. The event, which was hosted by Potatoes SA, was also LIVE streamed on social media and the website. It was well attended in person (and online) by various captains of industry, media and other role players.
Among the highlights of this interactive event was a panel discussion titled: “In order to remain sustainable and relevant, how can the agricultural industry participate in the clarification of government policies/master plans / action plans / blended financing.” It is events such as these, that facilitate the meeting of leading minds behind the scenes so as to connect farmers to consumers, and make sure that Mzansi always has a fresh serving of South Africa’s favourite vegetable.
