If you're passionate about the potato industry and want to provide a strong voice for UK growers, now is your chance to join the NFU’s dedicated forum for potato growers.

We are looking to appoint new members of the NFU Potato Forum to support the development and delivery of its policy objectives.

With up to 6 positions to be filled, we are looking for members from all parts of England and Wales covering a range of different markets (processing, chipping, fresh, seed etc.)

How to apply

What's involved

The NFU Potato Forum meets three times a year and has regular email and video call contact throughout the rest of the year.

It addresses key policy priority areas and reacts quickly to issues affecting the potato sector.

The next meeting will be held at NFU HQ in Stoneleigh on 11 May, with a further date to be confirmed in November.

If you'd like to know more about the role, please contact Rupert on 07973 237885 or email [email protected].

Links with the NFU's Horticulture and Potatoes Board

The NFU Potato Forum works alongside the NFU's national Horticulture and Potatoes Board and has a critical role in shaping NFU policies that impact on potato growers.

Whether it is crop protection or business resilience, or tackling the impacts of the Ukraine crisis, the NFU Potato Forum helps identify the issues affecting members and creates a plan of action to address them.

The Forum also has the opportunity to input into national policy through the Horticulture and Potatoes Board, with both the chair and vice chair of the Forum currently sitting on the national board.
