The Potato Industry Forum (PIF) hosted by Potatoes South Africa (PSA) took place on 5 April this year. A small face-to-face function was hosted at the Woodhill Country Club and was also attended by role-players online. Formal proceedings included the annual Chairperson’s Report of the Potato Industry Development Trust, delivered by Ernst Yzel, chairperson of the trust, along with a business
