过去的文件显示,蒙斯的一名比利时官员在1587年收到了梵蒂冈大使朋友赠送的马铃薯(次年,他将样品寄给了维也纳的一位植物学家)。在一个世纪内,比利时人对马铃薯的发展做出了具有里程碑意义的贡献,他们声称发明了炸薯条。

2012年,比利时在世界马铃薯生产国中排名第23位,产量略高于290万吨。由于平均单产42吨/公顷(2005年),马铃薯是该国的主要粮食作物,尽管耕种面积不到耕地总面积的5%。

比利时马铃薯用于新鲜食用的占比不到15%,大约86%被加工成薯片、冷冻薯条、淀粉和其他产品。 2006年,比利时出口了100多万吨马铃薯加工产品和2.1万吨种薯,还从法国、德国和荷兰进口了120多万吨新鲜马铃薯和14万吨马铃薯产品。(来源:国际马铃薯年)
