Netherlands: ‘Increasing demand for wash suitable potatoes’

There is more and more demand for real specialist work on the potato market. This was testified by Jaap Kodde of potato wholesaler Flevostar Dronten. “The demand is coming both from Europe and outside. We have been supplying wash suitable potatoes to the Middle East for some time. That work takes a lot of time and energy, and you take down your capacity, but you’re providing something that is in demand. It’s not for everyone. The demand from Eastern Europe is increasing. The big question is what Russia will do. Discussions between Russia and the EU will take place again shortly.” More
