Canadian potato storage holdings January 11 2022

Market cannot handle additional potato volume from PEI domestically

Total Canadian Potato Storage Holdings on January 1, 2022 are at almost 80 million hundred weight, which is 20% above 3-yr. average levels of 66.5 million hundred weight.

Eastern Canada is the biggest contributor as a result of the large crop dug in the 4 Eastern Provinces. Also compounding the stocks  increase is an embargo on PEI Potatoes preventing them from being shipped to the United States since November 22nd. The Canadian market has not been able to handle the additional volume domestically.
