How the mighty fall, again…

Posted on 26/09/2017

By the time you have finished reading this, we will have moved over to a new harvest main crop which brings its own challenges, not least because of the variable quality of raw material we are witnessing from the farms.

If we look back to April 2017, the day and 6 month potato future prices were certainly a lot higher than where we find them today. As I write this newsletter, the raw material prices across Europe are falling below €100/ton.

Potato Crop Update March 2014

Crop Update

Posted on 21/06/2017

In mid-July we move to the new crop, good news given that in last April’s newsletter we reported a limited supply of old crop potatoes. This shortage resulted in higher prices; despite there being limited trading of potatoes over the last weeks, the daily price has risen significantly from € 210 per ton in the third week of March, to €255 per ton in the first week of June.
