Market still tough for processing potatoes


THE industrial demand for processing potatoes in Belgium is almost non-existent on the free market as factories remain supplied through contracts the potato industry association of potato growers in Wallonia in Belgium, Fiwap. 

There are reports of demand for export (also via Dutch exporters) to Africa. Alternative markets (livestock, starch, etc) remain active with similar prices to what the industry or traders can offer. The supply from the field is ending, and the one from storage is very limited by the low price levels.
