Potato Starch price increases

February 14th, 2014 | Posted by jwlbrace in general update - (0 Comments)

As the potato starch campaign draws closed for 2013/14, we are seeing  commodity potato starch products, including dried potato starches, rise in price as availability falls short of global market demand.

Daymer Ingredients has been advised to expect higher prices in the forthcoming months until the campaign for 2014/15 begins towards the end of August 2014.  Expected pricing levels for Q4 2014 are not yet know, however crop reports in the summer should provide some indication for future market levels.

We will be informing affected customers in due course.

On the 6th July 2011 The Daily Express ran a front page story criticising both food retailers and the UK Government for their salt reduction strategies.

Is this an initial sign of the salt reduction trend easing down in the UK?
