Germany faces potato shortage

Only 9.2 million tonnes of potatoes for Germany:

Dieter Tepel, president of the German potato trade union, emphasised that the potato branch is facing a tense situation in 2013. The consumer will also notice the consequences. The price of potatoes may be higher than in previous years, but compared to other European countries they are still relatively low in Germany.

Potato Starch price increases

October 15th, 2013 | Posted by jwlbrace in general update - (0 Comments)

Due to restricted availability, we are forced to increase prices on Native Potato Starch.

Modified Potato Starch prices remain static at this time, but the increased demand on the raw material will likely have an impact in the near future.

We will contact all existing customers in due course, however for more information, please contact us.
