March 2015 news

The trade during March has been quite lively.

Recently announced Potato Council stock figures suggested 2.3m tonnes in store at the end of January. This figure is up year on year based on higher production but prices for packing material, particularly premium varieties, are starting to edge upwards as a result of high wastage and improved retail sales.

The gap between top and bottom quality is starting to widen and is likely to continue.

Reports suggest crops are going in well, certainly better than last year.
