Apply to Be Named One of Spud Smart’s 10 Most Innovative Products


Hey architects of spud technologies, we’re looking for you! Have you recently created a product that has revolutionized the potato industry? From planting to harvest and from processing to packaging, this industry is evolving and it’s time to recognize the movers and shakers of spuds.

“We’re excited to honour innovative ideas that impact the potato industry,” says Ashley Robinson, editor of Spud Smart. “This crop is a critical part of the food chain and we’re excited to see new tools to help farmers and processors be successful.”

To apply, the product must have been launched in Canada after Jan 1, 2019. It must be related to potatoes in some way (it can be in food processing, as long as potatoes are a target crop). Applications are due Feb. 14, 2022. Winners of the 10 most innovative products will be based on the questions below, the products’ overall impact on the industry and potential for scalability and widespread use.

Spud Smart is excited to honor these innovative products that touch the potato industry. For the inaugural contest, please complete this application for consideration.
