Global frozen potato production capacity is now estimated to be at least 9.6 million metric tons a year, according to the Economic Research Service.

Worldwide exports of frozen potato products in 2000 were valued at $1.9 billion.

The rapid global expansion of fast-food restaurants is key to the tremendous growth in worldwide consumption and trade of frozen potato products.

The increase is being driven by the global popularity of Western-style cuisine.
