Jaap DellemanIn far-a-way Kiev this summer, I saw lovely table potatoes on the shelves of a large supermarket, with which many Ukrainians were filling their shopping carts. The choice here was: ready-packed in net bags or loose to choose and fill your own bag. This is an indication that the Ukrainian consumer is slowly moving away from potatoes home-grown in the backyard and stored in the cellar towards buying food in the supermarket.
