Despite the Spud Shortage, Potato-Chip Production at Herr’s in Nottingham Proceeds as Usual
Fans of delicious potato chips need not worry. Despite the bad weather affecting the potato crop of key producers in North America, Herr’s of Nottingham said its production will proceed as usual, writes Anthony Salamone for The Allentown Morning Call.
Herr’s said its potato supply remains strong, as the company obtains the raw product for its many goods from various areas around the country and from neighboring Canada. Many of these suppliers are not experiencing any growing issues.
“While this may mean small adjustments to where we get our potatoes short term, there will be no interruption to our output or ability to produce the finest quality potato chips for our customers,” said Herr’s.
Herr’s is not the only producer that is allaying public fear about potential shortages of French fries, chips, and other potato-based products, at least for now.
“The country is not in jeopardy of running out of frozen French fries,” said Dave Masser, president of Sterman Masser.
However, some other issues may materialize in the future, as the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecasts that domestic output will drop 6.1 percent in 2019, to its lowest level since 2010.
