AHDB: Volume gains in retail offset out-of-home losses for potatoes in Britain

Potato consumption has remained resilient in Britain over the past six months, despite closures in the foodservice market, according to figures released by AHDB. The organization says in a news article that strong retail sales led to an overall 12% volume increase for potatoes (fresh and processed, including crisps) in the six months to 9 August, according to AHDB estimates based on Kantar data.
