Seed potato exports

Tags:


A new bi-lateral trade agreement means that Scotland will export seed potatoes to Kenya.

The organisation’s head of crops export market development, Rob Burns, said: “The seed potato sector is already particularly successful at exploiting overseas markets with roughly 30% of the crop exported abroad and this agreement will only enhance our reputation for quality and high health.”

Around one fifth of all Scottish seed potatoes are exports to non-EU countries, with the remainder are shipped to farmers within the UK and Europe.

Mr Burns said the Kenyan market was worth around £50million a year. Currently, the only other country able to export seed potatoes to Kenya is the Netherlands.

He said Scottish exports could begin as early as April next year.
