The need for a new book to cover the whole potato processing industry has now been filled by Wilbur Gould, who has spend most of his active life in the food industry and has specialised in all aspects of potato processing and technology.

This book brings together every aspect of the industry from the choice of variety to planting and disease in potatoes, continuing with details on all the major methods of processing. The areas of quality control at all stages are dealt with in specific chapters, whilst the 5 appendices include current standard industry recommendations and legislation.
