What was it all about?

This short project spanning from 2019 to 2020, provided credible, evidence-based information and resources to educate health professionals about the attributes and benefits of Australian potatoes. 

Key project activities included:

  • Developing a science-based digital platform housing research and resources that can be shared with health professionals including dietitians, nutritionists, GPs, students of health-related disciplines, naturopaths, personal trainers and health coaches
  • Building engagement with health professionals via social media channels
  • Testing the nutritional profile of several Australian potato varieties to ensure up to date information is being disseminated by the project.

This project builds on previous investment, Potato Tracker - consumer and market research for the fresh potato industry (PT13015).
