Representatives of Swiss potato sector and retail trade endorse early potato concept for 2022

Representatives of the Swiss potato sector and retail trade have endorsed the early potato concept for 2022. The concept is essential for planning supplies and for a smoother transition from selling potatoes from storage to fresh produce.

Every year, the transition from ‘old potatoes’ to new crop production is a major challenge. To provide the market with young potatoes on time, early varieties are planted under shelters. At the same time, it is not planned to expand the area for planting potatoes in the spring in order to maintain market equilibrium.

An important goal of the new national potato concept is planning the production of young potatoes, taking into account the needs of buyers. The marketing of potatoes and organic potatoes in Switzerland has already been transformed. Poorly stored early maturing varieties, for example, are planned to be sold in brown bags.
