‘Potatoes: More Than A Bit On The Side’ is a three year EU-funded campaign for the promotion of fresh potatoes run by Bord Bia and AHDB Potatoes on behalf of the potato industries in Ireland and Great Britain.
Potato consumption in Ireland has been in decline over the past decade, particularly with 22-44 year old women. There are also many health-based misconceptions around potatoes which this campaign is looking to tackle. We all live busy lives and require convenience in our cooking. Potatoes can provide healthy, quick solutions for innovative meal ideas.
