Full of French fries-stock: Frits crisis makes farmers Worry

Cloudy sky, some rain, not too hot: The conditions for the growth of the potato could currently hardly be better. The Ruedi Fischer (52), the top potato farmer in the country says. The Berne speaks of the “enormous and brilliant” conditions. Of the “wachsigem” weather. If the summer is not too dry and hot, could 2020 be a really good year for Potatoes.

The Problem is that The stocks from the harvest of last year are not yet exhausted for a long time. This applies in particular to potatoes that have already been processed to French fries. They stack up at minus 25 degrees in a variety of deep-freeze warehouses. Switzerland sits on several 1000 tons of French fries. Or with other words: It fries-jam reigns!
