Supply situation in Europe develops for the worse
It became clear already in early July 2006 that our potato harvest would be lower than average this year.
With each passing day the supply situation is getting worse.
Shortage and price increases unavoidable
Denmark is the most stable country for potato growing. All our farmers can irrigate, but even in Denmark the harvest will be much lower than usual.
The consequences are shortages and heavy price increases. For KMC it is no comfort that the situation in other European countries is even worse.
All starch types affected
Not only potato starch is affected. Also the grain harvest is hit hard. The corn and wheat starch markets also indicate heavy price increases
