IFA: Retail and early markets remain strong; drought still a concern across Europe

The Irish Farmers’ Association (IFA) reports in its weekly potato update that demand at retail level remains strong, given that the majority of people are still working from home. The peeling market is beginning to show some life and there should be a significant lift in demand when restaurants  re-open on June 29th.  

Demand from packers is quite slow at present but this has more to do with using some of their own stocks then any major overhang of stocks in the market.

The early market remains very strong with prices averaging
