Who we are

The HIP is an innovative partnership made up of representatives of the horticulture and potato industry on behalf of, and for the benefit of, the horticulture and potato industry.

Led by a Steering Group comprising growers, policy makers, research funders and providers, suppliers and retailers, the HIP will ensure that there is a more coherent approach to the coordination of funding for research on horticultural crops and potatoes and its translation into benefits for business and society. HIP aims to stimulate world-class innovation in the UK horticulture and potato industry to facilitate profitability, sustainability and expansion and maximise the contribution that UK businesses can make to the supply of products to consumers in the UK and for export
