Australia: SE potato growers in negotiations with McCain about Safries plant

Potato farmers have been negotiating with McCain Foods regarding a takeover of the Safries processing plant near Penola. Until now farmers had been transporting their harvested potatoes to McCain’s Ballarat plant 300km away, with the company footing the bill, after the Penola plant closed late last year. McCain Foods can’t take all the farmers’ potatoes at once so the farmers are looking to take control of the Penola plant to use it for storage.
