Phase II of the successful 'The Potato--From Plough to Plate' website has been launched to the public with two events organised by Waitrose and leading potato suppliers Solanum.

Traceability of both conventional and organic potatoes is the key focus of Phase II and allows consumers to get closer to the products' origin. By simply entering the traceability number printed on the packaging, consumers are able to find out where their potatoes were grown, along with details and a photo of the farmer.
