Nearly four hundred schoolchildren have been introduced to potato growing thanks to Produce World and the East of England Agricultural Society’s Kids Country initiative. All the children who enjoyed the Grow Your Own Potatoes planting event at the East of England Showground will return in June to see how well their potatoes have done, and take part in a weigh-in to see who has grown the most.

Rachel Ilgunas from Produce World says: “This is our fourth year of involvement with the Kids Country Grow Your Own Potatoes event and it was another great planting day with hundreds of local children taking part. The anticipation of Harvest Day on 8th June was already setting in with our young growers!”

The Produce World Group is the largest supplier of fresh vegetables in the UK, providing produce into major retailers, food service and food manufacturing customers. Crops supplied by the group include potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onions, leaks, and garlic. As well as conventionally grown vegetables, the Produce World Group is a leader in the organic category.
