Issues in British potato sector require closer relationships

Better relationships between potato growers and the rest of the supply chain are needed if the sector is to cope with its current downturn. The fresh potato industry has been hit by declining consumption combined with good production over the past two years which has led to dangerously high stocks, and a subsequent crash in price. The Potato Council has voiced concerns over how the stocks, estimated to be equivalent to two boxes per hectare in November, will be consumed by the industry, and sector chiefs have warned of the need for a 10 per cent cut in production in the forthcoming season.
