Agrana Potato Starch Campaign 2008 forecasts

 Agramna Staerke GmbH
September 26, 2008
The potato starch campaign at the AGRANA facility in Gmünd|Lower Austria started on 26 August. Including organic potato starch, this year’s harvest will be around 210,000 tonnes (prior year: 195,000 tonnes), thereby reaching the limit of the contractual quantity.

The starch content is expected to be higher than in the prior period at around 18%. This in turn is expected to yield approximately 45,000 tonnes (prior year: 40,000 tonnes) of potato starch. 94% of the Austrian potato starch quota of 47,691 tonnes, unchanged from the prior period, is therefore expected to be taken up.

The processing of organic food industry potatoes to make long-lasting products such as potato flakes, will remain at the level of the prior year with around 28,000 tonnes.
