United Potato Growers of Canada welcomes back three provinces

United Potato Growers of Canada was formed in February 2006 by the Provincial Potato Boards in Canada; it represents 98 percent of the Canadian potato industry. Now the president of the United Potato Growers of Canada is pleased industry groups in several provinces have decided to rejoin the national organization.

The Ontario Potato Board, Potatoes New Brunswick and the Saskatchewan Seed Growers Association have returned to the organization over the last several months. Souris-area producer Ray Keenan, who chairs the national organization, said the decision by the three groups makes the organization stronger.

The Ontario organization decided to rejoin the fold in early March following its annual trade show. Potatoes New Brunswick rejoined in early February as full members following recent presentations by Victoria Stamper, General Manager to both the Board of Directors and the Shippers Association. New Brunswick Potatoes would be a member as a representative of their grower members in that province.
