State-of-the-art production techniques
In our four factories, we process tons of potatoes each day to
produce the tastiest potato products. Three factories are located
in The Netherlands in Oosterbierum, Bergen op Zoom and Kruiningen,
the fourth factory is in Wisbech in Great Britain. From them, we
serve our markets in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Sustainability, food safety and good working conditions all play
an important role in our factories. We use state-of-the-art
production techniques and work constantly at improving our
processes. The supply of constant quality is our priority.

Blanching and pre-frying
We blanch the fries briefly and then fry them in 100%
vegetable oil. The oil temperature and frying time is of course
constantly monitored in order to guarantee optimum
The pre-fried fries are frozen to approximately minus
nine degrees Celsius. In the packaging department, the fries are
packed into bags and boxes by a fully automated process. The
products are finally transported to our customers in Europe and
further afield, from our modern frozen storage facilities.
