Retail demand for potatoes remains buoyant in Ireland

Retail demand remains buoyant in Ireland, and the food service sector is now operating at around 20-25% of capacity as more restaurants open on a take-out basis, according the IFA’s weekly report released earlier today.

The IFA says glasshouse potatoes started over the last two weeks, and roadside sales are expected to begin next week. With current travel restrictions in place it is unknown what projected sales will be.

If dry weather and winds conditions persist in Ireland, crops will most likely be delayed, especially along the east coast. First outdoor early crops are expected to be dug for the June bank holiday weekend.
