Bord Bia is celebrating National Potato Day on Friday 4th October 2019. This year Bord Bia is encouraging consumers to #LikeShareCook potato recipes and to move potatoes from "on-the-boil" to "on-line". Keep your eyes peeled for National Potato Day articles and delicious potato recipes!

We’re very excited to announce our plans for National Potato Day which is taking place on Friday 4th October. National Potato Day is an annual event where we can celebrate potatoes as a nation and enjoy some wonderful potato recipes; which we have plenty of right here on potato.ie!

What can you do to celebrate National Potato Day this year? Simply select any recipe on potato.ie, cook, eat and enjoy it! To be in with a chance to win one of a series of €250 shopping vouchers, enter the competition below and #LikeShareCook your favourite potato recipe.

In the week running up to National Potato Day, Bord Bia will run a series of events online and on Third Level campuses around the country in order to encourage consumers, and in particular students, to get involved in the campaign. Following on from National Potato Day, Bord Bia will support the Dingle Food Festival (Friday 4th- Sunday 6th October) and will co-ordinate cookery demonstrations and talks throughout the weekend.
