Scotland: Tattie farmers at breaking point over poor prices

Scottish tattie growers have warned they could be forced to call it a day if market conditions don’t improve. The warning from NFU Scotland comes at a time when supermarkets are selling potatoes for a retail price of between £500 and £1,500 tonne, while farmers are only receiving an average of £50 a tonne for their produce. The union says many growers are now questioning their future in the sector, with farmgate prices a far cry from the estimated £150 a tonne cost of production.
