Royal Avebe

Royal Avebe (Silver Sponsor)


Royal Avebe is a cooperative of 2,100 arable farmers in the Netherlands and Germany. Each year, the starch potatoes of those members are processed into high-grade ingredients based on potato starch and protein; they add value to food products but also to industrial applications worldwide.

Avebe works continuously on developing new opportunities and applications based on starch potatoes and is focused on sustainable continuity. The company has more than 1,300 employees and production sites in the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden and sales offices in the United States, Europe and Asia. The Head Office is in Veendam and Avebe has an innovation center on the Zernike campus in Groningen.

Our breeding company Averis Seeds B.V. works on the natural breeding and development of potato varieties. Varieties with properties that match our innovative ambitions. That is how we create a business that is more and more sustainable and on achieving a sound return for our members. Our clients produce the most varied range of products in the food sector, but

also in industrial applications and high-grade animal feed. They choose our ingredients because they have added value – they simplify the production process, improve the flavour of the product or extent its shelf-life.

Achieve optimal returns

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. We want to achieve optimum returns for our growers not just today, but also tomorrow and in the distant future. Our aim is to achieve harmony between making a profit, the environment and people: our growers, employees and customers. That is where we want to excel.
