Our Founder


Renowned throughout the world for his success as a breeder at the Scottish Plant Breeding Station, Pentlandfield, near Edinburgh, and particularly as a private breeder in the extreme North of Scotland.

Dr Jack Dunnett is a plant breeder of rare talent who combines his top breeding skills with a keen understanding of the commercial demands of the potato industry.

Visionary in his approach, he has rarely followed the orthodox path, a style which has led to a great many successful innovations.

This success has led to many honours being bestowed upon him including the Haig trophy from NASPM, the James Hardie Memorial Trophy from the VTSC Growers Asociation and a presentation from the 1994 World Potato Congress “in recognition of your (his) outstanding contribution to the development of the World Potato Industry”.
