India is reportedly on the brink of exhausting all of its cold storage space for potatoes. Due to low prices across the country, India’s growers are opting to place their potatoes in cold storage as they wait for the market to rebalance. 

Ashish Guru, senior vice-president of the Federation of Cold Storage Association of India, said, “Arrivals have flooded markets in various parts of the country such as Gujarat, Bengal, Punjab, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Most of the arrivals have been diverted to the cold storages.”
