Significantly larger exports of consumption potatoes to Belgium from Netherlands

Published Mar 22, 2023

Tridge summary

Strong demand from Belgium lifted the total export of Dutch consumer and industrial potatoes to 91,314 tonnes in February. This means that exports are hardly inferior to the peak exports in February 2009 and 2013. The biggest difference with then is that exports this season are even more focused on Belgium, because the Belgians themselves have brought in a smaller harvest. In 2009 and 2013 there was also a high demand from Germany and in 2013 also from the United Kingdom. In addition to exports to Belgium, the Netherlands exported around 25,000 tonnes to other EU member states. Together with sales to the United Kingdom and Switzerland, total sales within Europe amount to almost 75,000 tonnes. Many sales to Africa Africa bought almost 11,000 tons. That is a considerable amount for the month of February. Last year it was 7,000 tons and in the years before that it was less than 5,500 tons. Senegal, Mauritania and Ivory Coast in particular bought potatoes here.
