PotatoPotato Market Reports

Potato Market Update 3rd May


Consumption is reported to be stable with trade for the food service sector also steady. Continued reports of trade for packing quality material is positive as markets tighten. Planting progresses slowly around the country throughout the sporadic rainfall. Trade within the peeling market remains buoyant with strong prices continuing above €300/t.

In Northern Europe processing has been reported to have dropped by 50c. Stocks in Belgium have been moved back into the market as free buy processing stocks tighten resulting in prices being pushed higher. Export markets are much quieter this week but movement continues from Germany to Poland and Czech Republic. In the U.K, temperatures have warmed allowing soils to dry and planting to continue throughout the country.  Yields are currently “disappointing” but should quickly improve in the warmer weather.
