THREE NEW members have been appointed to the Potato Council’s board by its governing body, the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.

Scottish seed potato specialist, Alistair Melrose, managing director of AJ Allan, Brechin, will be joined on the board by Anthony Carroll, Carroll’s Heritage Potatoes, and Zoe Henderson, an independent member.

“Both Anthony and Alistair are well known to us and the industry having already served on our advisory committees,” said Allan Stevenson, chairman of the Potato Council. “And, Zoe’s wealth of experience in agricultural marketing will help us capitalise on the consumer benefits offered by potatoes.”
