About us

The establishment of the UK Horticulture Innovation Partnership (HIP) marks a significant step for the horticulture and potato industry.

Stakeholders from the research and knowledge community have joined forces with the commercial supply chain to unlock the potential for innovation and growth. Their common purpose is to identify the technological and commercial barriers which may prevent business development and to facilitate collaborative activities to address these.

The HIP is an innovative ‘think tank’ that will scope out a strategy to meet the technical requirements for the industry, and will also become a focal point of contact and conduit for the supply chain, supporting the development and exploitation of scientific opportunities for business and society.
