Simplot shows appreciation for Canadian potato growers at award banquet

Although being a distant memory at this point, the 2019,2020 and 2021 growing seasons were honoured recently at the William Glesby Centre in in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. Everyone in attendance was applauded for their hard work, but only a select few could take home hardware, according to a report by the PortageOnline Newsroom.

It was the first Potato Grower Awards Banquet held since 2018, and Cora Buechler from Simplot Canada told PortageOnline that they were thrilled with the turnout of producers.

Derek McIntosh, Manager of MacIntosh Ventures, took home the “Large Grower Award” not only for 2019 but 2020 as well, which he says is an honour.
