'Chipocalypse' is heading to NZ!

What's Fresh 16/10/2017

Yes Aotearoa, heading into Summer you may notice the shelves become bare in the Potato Chip aisle in your local supermarket due to a nationwide potato shortage after a pretty wet winter.

There should be enough potatoes to feed regular consumption, so it's safe to say boil ups will continue however potato chips are being impacted. So if you're thinking summer BBQs family & friends which of course are perfectly accompanied with the kiwi fave of chip & dip you might want to head to your local supermarket to stock up now.

Check out the interview on this mornings AM show with Potatoes New Zealand chief executive Chris Claridge about the issue.
