It is with deepest sympathy that Potatoes South Africa shared the loss of Frank Lawrence, who passed away due to a farming accident at a time when he was still offering so much to so many in the agricultural industry. Frank made a significant and valuable contribution to the potato industry and will be sorely missed. PSA acknowledges and appreciates Frank’s selflessness. As a donor involved in the establishment of the Potato Industry Development Trust (PIDT) in 2004, Frank set the journey of the potato industry in motion through his exemplary leadership.
