Chris Jones and Neil Moorcroft (Potato Buyer) visited Cyprus with QV Foods and Produce Plus, to meet with the Cyprus Potato Marketing Board that represent over 1,000 potato growers on the island.

They met with several growers to review crop quality in the field and also in the packing station.

They found that the overall quality of material reviewed was fantastic and it is currently being stocked in the majority of ASDA stores.
