Potato Market Update 13th October

Dry weather has improved lifting conditions around Ireland

Retail demand has eased slightly in Ireland, although colder weather forecasted should improve trade again. The food service sector continues to thrive, although this is traditionally a quieter period.

Dry weather has improved lifting conditions around the country.  Yields are reported to be very ‘average’ to date. Trade remains buoyant for the peeling market.

Heavy rain over the south of the UK has hindered liftings over the past few days, although ground is drying quickly. Clearance is reported in the range of 50%-80% with some growers finished. 

Across Europe liftings were delayed over the past two weeks due to very dry ground conditions, 25-50mm of rain this week has greatly improved this and good progress is expected in the next week. Prices for the fresh sector are currently described as holding or slightly easier and export demand is very quiet.
