Bangladesh to export potato to Japan

May 04, 2023
A Japanese company has expressed interest to import potatoes from Bangladesh, said Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzaque. The minister said this while addressing a program at Westin Hotel in Tokyo on Thursday (April 27).

ACI Agribusiness President FH Ansari was also present at the meeting. Dr Razzaque said more than 10 million tons of potatoes are produced in the country every year against the demand of 6 to 7 million tons.

But the demand for the varieties of potatoes that are currently being produced in Bangladesh is very low abroad, he said, adding that therefore, importance is being given to the expansion of exportable and industrial-grade potato varieties, said the minister.
