The roots of the Prince Edward Island Potato Board can be traced as far back as 1920, when the first Potato Growers’ Association was formed on Prince Edward Island. A true marketing board followed in 1950 and was restructured as a producer controlled board under the Natural Products Marketing Act in 1990.

The PEI Potato Board is made up of 12 directors elected by their peers to serve a three year term. The Island is divided into four districts: West Prince, Summerside, Charlottetown and Montague-Souris.
