Belgium: Potato processing volume rises to record level

The Belgian potato processing industry continued its road to success last year. In total a record amount of 3.8 million potatoes were processed. That’s 6.9% more than in the slightly weaker previous year. 18 companies processed their potatoes into potato products such as crisps, chips and peeled potatoes. At 1.4 million tonnes, chips (fries) are the most important sector of the processing industry. In 1990 companies in Belgium only processed 500,000 tonnes of potatoes. (Source:
