NAO, the Dutch Potato Organisation, in collaboration with our partner Food Cabinet
Understand Dutch consumers’ attitudes towards, as well as knowledge and consumption of potatoes. The insights were used in a press-release to kick-off the National Aardappelrooidag (potato harvest day) 2022.
We designed a questionnaire to understand Dutch consumers’ buying and eating habits of potatoes. Next to that, we also addressed the topics of sustainability (in potato farming), knowledge about and relationship with farmers and agriculture, new potatoes, and children and families. And on top of that we also assessed feelings and associations that consumers have with potatoes.
Even though 81% of Dutch consumers eat potatoes at least twice a week, about a third (of all consumers) are not aware where their potatoes come from.
At the same time, potatoes are not seen as a food that is good for the planet, with only 15% of consumers describing them as ‘sustainable’.
Most parents (73%) want their children to know where their food comes from, making the ‘Nationale Aardappelrooidag’ a wonderful opportunity to show them.
