Global potato market report: ‘Global supply to be lower’

It looks like being a tough season for potatoes across much of the world. The hot dry weather during the growing season in most production countries has had a severe effect on potatoes, as for many other crops, as FreshPlaza reports in an extensive overview of the potato market situation in many potato producing regions and countries around the world.

According to the report, “the global supply is predicted to be lower, as most countries appear to be expecting a slightly to significantly lower yield”.

The huge increase in energy costs is also of great concern, as many growers are apparently reluctant to store the crop, particularly while the prices are generally high. Europe in particular will likely have to turn to more imports to cover the high demand on the market this season.
