Potato starch producer Avebe and potato growers had to deal with drought and high temperatures in the second half of July, which has affected the harvest.
Following such unpredictable cultivation season, Avebe production began in end of August and its first potatoes were delivered at the locations in Gasselternijveen (NL) and Dallmin (Germany). Other production locations in Ter Apelkanaal and the German Lüchow are also expected to start production soon. Avebe will also process potatoes from other affiliated members.
Avebe’s harvesting season continues until mid-April 2020. It procures potatoes from over 2300 Dutch and German members and processes them into potato starch and potato protein that are used in food, industrial applications and animal feed.
Avebe predicts a lower starch yield in this season as compared to past years. However, since the harvesting season has just started, it is still early to exactly predict the output.
Europe’s potato starch markets will be discussed in detail at CMT’s 4th Starch World Europe on 16-18 October, 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
