The impact of the unseasonal weather means smaller potatoes for French fry processors, which typically use longer potatoes to produce their fries, Blomberg reported.
Cold, wet weather in key locations for potato production across the United States and Canada could lead to higher prices and a shortage of French fries, Bloomberg reports.
Kevin MacIsaac, general manager of the United Potato Growers of Canada, added: 'Potatoes are going to have to move from one channel to another that they sometimes don't move in a normal year'.
Potato crop yields dropped in areas like Alberta, Colorado, Idaho, Manitoba, North Dakota, and Minnesota due to cold weather snaps between September and November. "Several farmers left potatoes in the ground to avoid the cost of digging them up". Manitoba and Alberta are the second- and third-largest growers in Canada, respectively, and the government is expected to release crop estimates Friday.
