In "Big-5" 1 million tons more potatoes than in the previous year

According to estimates by the European Association of Potato Growers, this year's German potato harvest is 7% larger than last year. In the member countries of the association (D, F, B, NL + GB), the harvest in the "Big 5" this year will be 27.9 million tons, one million tons larger than in the previous year. The record result from 2017, when 29.6 million tons were harvested, is far from being achieved.
Nevertheless, there is a great imbalance in the market for potato products. The big potato processors are still not back to their pre-corona processing levels. Since March 2020, hardly any freely available fries raw material has been used according to their actual purpose. Instead, a secondary market has developed that directs the excess raw material into feed troughs, biogas plants or the dry industry. In this unsatisfactory situation for potato farmers, nothing will change for the time being.
