Due to a deficit in production Bolivia imports 25 mn kilos of potato

Bolivia only produces 1.1 million tons and demand is 1.2 million. It is because there is a weakness in the sector to produce Dutch potato, used to make French fries. The cultivation of this variety in Bolivia barely represents 2%. The increase in the percentage of imports is an only pre-frozen peeled potato for making French fries.
