Every year, the Netherlands produces some eight million tonnes of potatoes. About half are ware potatoes, approximately 20% are seed potatoes and the remaining 30% are potatoes grown for starch.

About one million tonnes of potatoes are exported per year. Two and a half million tonnes go to the processing industry, to be processed into a wide range of potato products. The rest are destined for Dutch consumers.
