Next Generation Industry Leaders - 2015-16

25 May 2016

AHDB’s Next Generation Programme was launched in 2015 with the aim of developing the future leaders of the Great British potato industry through exposure to all areas of the supply chain.

The successful applicants for the 2015-16 programme competed for their place with applications for the first ever year of the programme outnumbering places 3 to 1.

The first year of the programme consisted of a series of 9 days of visits covering mini-tuber production; selecting, sourcing and exporting seed; the fresh supply chain; potato processing; potato handling and engineering technology; storage; long-term investment; political awareness; and the scale of the supply chain.
