Potato industry eyes expansion

11:41 am on 27 July 2011

The potato industry body is looking to expand from its grower base to include other members of the supply chain.

Potatoes NZ was meeting with its members on Wednesday as part of Horticulture New Zealand's conference in Rotorua.

Chairman Terry Olsen says the organisation has been grower-based since 1988 and change is needed.

So far, he has found members are in favour of expansion.
