China Banks on Potatoes for Food Security

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Contributing Analyst

The Chinese Government has decided that its people need to eat more potatoes in order ease pressure on the country’s scarce agricultural resources. It is true that fresh potatoes are performing quite well as the leading starchy root in China, but they face a tough battle ahead in their quest to rival the country’s most popular carbohydrate staples. The government may well succeed in turning the potato into the economical choice, but imbuing it with trendiness is another matter.

Potato production lags behind

In early January, China’s Central Government announced that it was to turn potatoes into the country’s fourth most important staple crop after rice, wheat and corn (maize). By 2020 the area allotted to potato cultivation would be doubled to 10 million hectares (100,000 km2).

As eggs shed their high-cholesterol stigma, sales will increasingly be fuelled by rising demand from mature consumers, providing excellent long-term growth prospects.

Eggs beat meat

Consumers who love protein love eggs, and they certainly have a lot to offer. Eggs are tasty, nutritious, versatile and relatively cheap. Plus, frying one up does not require an advanced master class in haute cuisine.

The high-protein trend originated in the US, where eggs are benefitting from consumers searching out alternatives to meat. As growing numbers of people tune into environmental and health issues, they start to realise that their meat consumption is already on the high side, and that meat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is not the way forward.
