The British Potato Trade Association (BPTA) is the representative body for the British Potato Industry.The bulk of the tonnage of seed potatoes traded in Great Britain for both the home and export markets (between 250,000 & 300,000 tonnes annually) is handled by the 120 members of the new Association. This gives the Association greater negotiating power on behalf of its members.
The BPTA covers all aspects of potato production and sales, both at home and for the export trade. This website provides information for both existing and potential members. By clicking on the ‘About Us’ link above you can find details of the Association’s office-bearers, council members, committees and constitution & rules. Any trader in the UK dealing in potatoes can become a member and gain the benefits of membership subject to certain conditions as detailed in the Association’s constitution & rules. Further details can be obtained from the secretary.
