What can membership do for you?

We are working on your behalf to support and represent the GB Potato Industry.


We are GB Potatoes Organisation Ltd, incorporated as a business limited by guarantee and not for profit. ALL stakeholders will have the opportunity to become members; there will be no one controlling influence.


Our key immediate functions 

  • DEFEND: stand ready to defend the reputation of the industry when required, in a way that no other existing body can. 
    • Re-instate reputational and crisis management function
  • ENABLE: provide the platform for members to work in partnership on projects of mutual interest. 
    • Immediate need to support Blight & Aphid monitoring programmes
    • Facilitate conversations and ensure effective applications for available funding to support priority industry need.
  • COMMUNICATE: provide forums for the whole industry to come together to tackle the current challenges 
    • Act NOW to represent our Industry! 
  • KNOW: be aware of cross industry research and development activity, current and historic, to reduce duplication and bring together mutual interest groups. 
  • SPEAK: be the single point of industry contact for government, regulators & the media
    • Coordinated and pro-active support for the industry 
    • Engage on the immediate priority issues affecting the GB Potato Sector


The final operating budget will be agreed by the Governing Body. 


We are always looking for growers and industry representatives to complement the Governing Body – if you think you could support the organisation and help steer activity for the benefit of the whole industry please get in touch.


GB Potatoes is active and early signs are encouraging. We are now planning on the success of the organisation but in the event of GB Potatoes not receiving sufficient support and the difficult decision to not continue is taken, member fees received will be returned, minus the monies already spent on set-up costs.
