Prices for potatoes much higher

21/02/2019

Consumer prices for potatoes in the last two months of 2018 increased further (+4%), resulting in a 20% higher level than in December 2017. This result appears from the bimonthly notes to the Food Price Monitor. The price increase results from a poor potato harvest. At the end of 2018, farmers received a price for their potatoes which was almost twice as high as a year earlier.

Poor harvests worldwide led to a farm-gate price for grains that was 28% higher than at the end of 2017. Bread prices also increased in the last two months of 2018 (+3%), but were only 1% higher than a year previously. Contract-based industrial prices of bread and bread products hardly changed during these months, also not in comparison with last year. In December, consumers paid 3% more for vegetables and 4% less for fruit.

The prices of dairy, eggs, beef/meat at the end of the year remained quite stable. There was a considerable increase in the farm-gate price for eggs in the last two months of 2018 (12%).
