Belgium with frying raw material undersupplied

The potato processors in Belgium are undersupplied with raw materials. The yield is reported by the PCA association at just 3.5 million tonnes, or 900,000 tonnes less than in the previous year. In the winter storage 32% less potatoes are available than at this date in 2017 and 19% less than the 5-year average. This is due to average yields of only 370 dt / ha and a 1% smaller acreage. The most important variety for processing to potato products such as French fries is the Fontane, followed by the old variety Bintje. This prepares this year very large problems in storage and processing. There are threats of losses, so that one depends on imports on a sustained basis. Holland and France are currently supplying, as hardly any unsold chips are available domestically.
