Jorgenson, secretary manager of the Alberta Potato Commis- sion said today. Bulk erf the increase will be in the south. The increased1 demand, he said, comes both from existing processing plants in the prov- ince as well as from two new plants expected to go on stream later this year. Processed Alberta potatoes are marketed in various parts of Canada and substantial quan titles are exported to Grea Britain, he added. Potato chips produced In A berta have an increasing mar ket in British Columbia while Alberta French fries are find- ing acceptance in many parts of Canada including the major Montreal and Toronto markets. "The increase in potato acre- Jorgenson added, "is ord- erly and in line with current market demands. For this rea- son we would not project acre- age for future years at this time since it too will have to be in line with market de- mand." The demand for fresh pota- toes is increasing as well, he said. In being snipp- ed to various parts of Canada, Alberta potatoes have fount! ready acceptance in some areas in the United States. The too new plants scheduled for opening this year are one in Calgary processing potato chips and lie otSier will be Pak-Wel Foods potato dehydrating plant at VauxhaJl.
