In just a few decades, the Belgian potato-processing industry has developed into the largest exporter of precooked potato products in the world. So, Belgian fries can be enjoyed all over the world. In 2018, exports of frozen potatoes amounted to a good 2.8 million tonnes.
The Belgian potato-processing sector experienced record growth in 2018 and rounded the cape of 5 million tonnes of processed potatoes. They were processed into a wide range of potato products in Belgium.
The use of potatoes as an ingredient rose by 11.6% in 2018. This is by far the sharpest rise in the history of this relatively new branch of the Belgian food industry.
