The production volume of fresh potato is predicted to decrease by 50% in Lebanon due to various factors. The local farmers are reluctant to grow potatoes due to the higher production cost and lower demand. Meanwhile, the average price of potato seeds is between USD 900-1100 per MT.

Potato is the main exportable product of Lebanon. The two main varieties of Lebanese grown potatoes are Spunta (falling under the "waxy" category) and Agria (falling under the "starchy" category).

Lebanese potatoes' seasonal availability is all year long. Potatoes are mainly grown in the Bekaa region and Akkar plains. The different climatic zones ensure diversity in harvesting periods.

In the past couple of years, Lebanese exports of fresh potatoes have been growing, reaching an annual value of €37 million in 2014.

Usually, Lebanon exports potato in bags in wide-meshed bags weighing between 10 and 15 Kg but also sometimes transported in cartons depending on the country of destination requirements, in reefer containers with the below specifications:

- Temperature: +4 - +8 degrees C
- Ventilation setting: Cubic Meters er Hour: 15- 25
- Relative Humidity: 85 to 95
- Dehumidification: OFF
