Production of Organic Potato Gaining Ground in Finland

The ongoing sales season has proven that larger scale organic production stands a chance also in Finland. Until recently the market for organic potato has been the dominated by smaller local growers and a few bigger producers. However, an increase in acreage is needed to meet the increasing demand and quality requirements of both domestic and export customers. For example, it’s still rather difficult to find bigger lots of consistent quality for export. This is sure to be changed in a few years time and Finland will be able to offer arctic, pure and tasty organic potato for export.
