Belgians are being URGED to eat double the amount of fries they usually do weekly…
Yes, you heard correctly.
According to the Telegraph, the secretary general of Belgapom (trade association for potato growers), its been recommended Belgians need to buckle down and take one for the country and eat fries at least twice a week!
“Let us all eat French fries twice instead of once a week… By eating an extra portion during this crisis they could collaborate with farmers and the industry to avoid food losses”, he stated.
This is all to combat the mountain of potatoes that is building up in the country since the pandemic started affecting trade.
Belgium used to be #1 in the world for potato exports so obviously the pandemic has greatly affected the country.
SO GO FORTH PEOPLE OF BELGIUM – FOR MAN AND FOR COUNTRY!
CONSUME ALL THE FRIES YOU CAN CONSUME!
Wish we had that problem here!
