She adds that Willie Jacobs, CEO of Potatoes South Africa, says that local producers have suffered a severe knock during the Covid-19 pandemic – especially at the beginning of strict lockdown regulations last year. She adds that according to Jacobs, input costs have been increasing faster than market prices.
