49% of our $1.1 billion industry value can be attributed to NZ frozen fries. Our NZ growers supply the best produce to the frozen potato manufacturers in NZ. In 2021 we exported $74 million to Australasia and sold $651 million to the domestic market at retail and to fast-food service.
On farm there is ongoing innovation and GMP to ensure food is being produced in a sustainable way to care for environment (land and water), people, communities and to ensure a sustainable bottom line for our farmers and their families. It’s a challenge but our industry love potatoes and we love our farms, some of which have been in families for 100 years.
