Latest Potato News

For some ‘Super Saturday’ was the day they had been waiting for, the appeal of beer on tap and restaurant food enticing them back out-of-home, but for some it will take more time to feel confident venturing out.

New-crop has held the lion’s share of crop movement in potato markets this week. Some old-crop movement continues, mostly for packing and processing jobs in smaller volumes. This old-crop movement should likely reduce to very negligible levels as we move into August, facing more new-crop supplies.
