All under one roof

With our brand new cooperative PotatoNext, we have the complete range of consumer potato products under one roof. This way we can offer more choice and customization to our customers. And do everything we can to deliver quality and provide peace of mind. Also towards our highly valued growers. For example, through intensive support in the field of variety selection, cultivation, harvest, storage and certification programs, such as Planet Proof, Global Gap, SKAL and Albert Heijn’s ‘Beter Voor’ program. The merger enables us to take greater steps in the field of certifications and more intensive collaborations with stakeholders.

According to the new management, consisting of Jan Bijleveld and Mariska Werring, the main goal of PotatoNext is to offer added value to the affiliated growers. “We want to be at the top of the market when it comes to the pool price. To achieve this, we must think out of the box, look independently at developments in the market, dare to take risks and be open to new products and markets. This includes upgrading residual flows and developing innovative products.”
