Potato harvest at historical low level in Germany; Impact on potato supply and processed potato products

11-14-2018 05:58 PM CET | Associations & Organizations

Press release from: BOGK e. V.

After completion of the potato harvest the expected low yield of the crop due to the extreme drought this summer became true.

The German association of fruit, vegetable and potato processing industry (BOGK) confirmed therefore the content of their press release statement from July this year.

With only 8.7 million tons of potatoes the crop quantity reached a histori-cal all-time low level this year.

Farming and potato processing industry experts have currently estab-lished a reduction of 25 – 30 % for processing potatoes.

There is also a possibility of further reduction of processing potatoes due to quality issues such as glassy structure or germination during storage.

As a result of this year’s drought it is also be expected that the crop in 2020 will be affected in a negative way because the seed potatoes, especially the seed potatoes for the early crop potatoes, will not be sufficiently avail-able.

At the same time the demand for processed products is very high, a signifi-cant price increase in comparison to average harvests is already expected as it can be seen in the stock-exchange prices.

With present knowledge it is furthermore most likely that a continuous supply with potatoes in good quality until next seasons crop is not se-cured.

The German Association of the Fruit, Vegetable and Potato Processing Industry represents the sixth largest economic sector of the German food industry. To ensure safe production and healthy food, approx. 20.000 people work in almost 120 companies. BOGK is their representative, an information provider and facilitator towards politics, media and other economic sectors.
The Aim of BOGK is, in terms of its members, to have an active influence on current legislative projects regarding food law as well as agricultural economics, foreign trade and environmental policy.
