CUPGRA 34th Annual Cambridge Potato Conference 2023. See the Interviews Conducted by Beanstalk Global.

Held in early December 2023 in Cambridge, UK, the theme of this year’s conference was “Looking forward to disruptive solution’s” which provided the panelists and attendees scope to debate across the two days of the event and the various highly informative workshops.

With a packed event and an excellent Potato Barons’ Christmas Feast held at St John’s College in the Great Hall on the first evening, the conference was again deemed to be very successful.
