The New Zealand potato industry has welcomed the Government’s investigation into what it calls the “proven threat” of surplus frozen fries.

Potatoes New Zealand on Thursday said the industry was relieved by the news of the investigation, as the surplus was already 2.6m tonnes “and growing” due to the impacts of further lockdowns in parts of Europe.
