We get more out of the potato. It seems such an everyday crop, but in fact it’s one of nature’s special gifts. To Avebe a potato is a source of opportunities with even more ingredients that can be turned into value. We work on using all the opportunities provided by potatoes to make life pleasanter, healthier and more convenient. In the years to come we will continue with what we are doing now: unlocking the secrets of the potato and adding value to them.
