UK Potato Market Update - September 2019

Despite the heavy rain experienced over August, lifting has been going well across the UK. Free-buy prices are sliding however as the increased supply comes up against limited demand, with packers and processors covered heavily by contracted material.

There is optimism that the peeling trade will pick up from next week with schools returning. The extreme heat experienced in Europe over the summer may also mean further export opportunites await UK growers later in the season.
