Farmer’s Weekly [News]: Potato prices jumped by 70% in June

Towards the end of June deliveries started to increase, but volumes were expected to remain under pressure over the next four months, while a relatively cold winter could extend this trend well into the third quarter of the year, the report said.

Willie Jacobs, CEO of Potatoes South Africa, told Farmer’s Weekly that according to daily fresh produce market data, deliveries to fresh produce markets decreased only 6% in May and 3% in June, compared to similar periods in 2020.
