Potato protest in Australia highlights the possible dumping of cheap European spuds

On Tasmanian Country Hour with Tony Briscoe: The protest was outside the McCain processing plant in Smithton and involved farmers and workers in the potato industry along with politicians.

The event was organised as the threat of European potatoes being dumped in Australia remains a possibility because of COVID-19.

The protest was told the potato industry in Tasmania has already been hit hard this year with a wet harvest and many spuds are still in the ground.
