Cooler weather has led to a slight increase in potato consumption over the last week. All ambient store materials are finished here, in the UK there are reports that store material quality is degrading at a faster rate as the weather becomes warmer.

  IFA President Joe Healy said the EU Commission’s announcement on greater price transparency as part of bringing greater fairness to the food chain is another important step in the campaign to give farmers a bigger share of the final consumer price.

Consumption of potatoes is down this week due to the warm weather conditions. In the UK, trade in the bag market was subdued over the week however prices for top quality are increasing as supplies become harder to find.

Warmer weather conditions may cause a reduction in potato consumption over the next week. Store materials are very getting low at this stage in the year with most growers now finished selling.
