The podcast called “Eye on Potatoes” has been created by the National Potato Council in the US. Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts, it provides an opportunity for growers throughout the country and policy makers in Washington to learn about industry policy priorities.
According to Kam Quarles, NPC CEO, “Eye on Potatoes is a terrific way to keep our partners throughout the country and in D.C. updated, knowledgeable and engaged with our efforts on their behalf.”
The biweekly podcast is hosted by Lane Nordlund, a professional television and radio agriculture broadcaster based out of Bozeman, Montana. He has been involved in production agriculture his entire life.
In the latest episode, published online on Feb 17, the focus is on potato nutrition. In the introduction to the podcast, the NPC says that ensuring the nutritional value of potatoes is scientifically documented is essential for the creation of sound food policy. At Potato Expo 2020, the industry’s leading experts on the intersection of sound science and good food policy sat down to discuss the latest efforts to advance the scientific understanding of the role potatoes play in promoting the health of all people.
Plus, NPC CEO Kam Quarles provides a preview of the Potato D.C. Fly-In, where growers from across the country come together to stand up for potatoes on Capitol Hill.
