Potato Category Update

Potato Category Update

The effects of this year’s unprecedented growing season have been well documented. The lack of quality graded potato available for current demand and future storage is now being realised.

We forecast shortages and price pressure continuing right through to next summer.

 

Graded Chipping Potatoes – are a lot smaller in size with a lack of water available to help growing conditions earlier in the year.

Salad Mid Potatoes – harvest quality has been affected by the extreme conditions.

 

It will be a tough period coming up for availability, price and quality, we will keep you updated as we hear or see things but please be aware.
