The repercussions of the drought in the US are expected to escalate Korean imports of potatoes from other countries in 2022. While Korean imports of US potatoes generally spike in October and increase toward December, imports from September to December 2021 were considerably less than what they were usually. Demand for Australian potatoes is expected to rise as an alternative market, especially for major potato chip producers.
