China: Frozen French Fry Exports Exceed Imports

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2022-0124

Marketing year (MY) 2022/23 China's frozen French fry (FFF) exports are estimated at 84,000 metric tons (MT), approximately 12 percent higher than the previous year. In MY 2021/22 China became a net FFF exporter for the first time, a trend that is likely to continue given a near doubling of FFF production capacity. China’s MY 2022/23 FFF imports are forecast at 50,000 MT, about six percent lower than MY 2021/22 due to logistics disruptions. China’s MY 2022/23 fresh potato production is estimated at 93 million metric tons (MMT), a two percent decrease over MY 2021/22 primarily due to decreased acreage.
