Cypriot potatoes becoming increasingly popular in Europe.

Gaetano Modugno, manager of the Cypriot potato company Evergreen di Modugno Gaetano:

"This is a product that stands out for the careful process of selection and packaging."
These potatoes, which have Global GAP and IFS certificates, have been present on the international market for 10 years and have reached an average of 50,000 tonnes marketed per year.

The countries showing the most interest in Cypriot potatoes are Italy, which buys 30% of the production and, in turn, re-sells it; France, which buys 25%; the Netherlands, with another 25%; and the United Kingdom and Germany, with 10% each.

The average price of the product in the international market is about 0.50 Euro per kilo, with 0.80 Euro per kilo paid at the start of the campaign.

Gaetano Modugno:

"We could say that the price of potatoes remains stable year after year."
The secret to the success of his potatoes?

Gaetano Modugno:

"These are potatoes that have been cultivated under almost constant favourable weather conditions, and the degree of salinity of the soil results in them having a very good consistency compared to Italian potatoes from the area of Apulia."
