‘Dutch potato market a bubble that’s about to burst,’ says market trader

According to Felix Molenaar of the eponymous potato company from Haarlem, the Netherlands, the table potato market is very calm.

“That’s not unusual at the start of the summer,” he told FreshPlaza, but it has actually been like this since February. We had temperatures of +20 degrees Celsius for ten days back then, and the potato quickly became less popular. People suddenly stopped eating hotpots, and consumption levels haven’t gone up again.

The chips trade is hot, as are the ready-to-cook potato products, but it’s been a difficult market for table potatoes.”
