Potato Sustainability Initiative: A Unique Collaboration

The Potato Sustainability Initiative is a partnership of growers, grower organizations, processors, potato product buyers, the National Potato Council, the Canadian Horticultural Council and the IPM Institute of North America, working to improve the sustainability of potato production.


PSI Semi-Annual Meeting

The summer semi-annual PSI meeting took place from June 13-15 in Quebec City, Quebec. All members of our Advisory Committee were able to attend and we had many impactful conversations. We are looking forward to future developments for PSI!


PSI Audits Underway

We are in our third year of conducting third-party audits to verify our growers’ survey answers and continually improve the PSI program. This year’s audit season is taking place from February-October 2018 and covers over 100 growers.
