Avebe (Silver Sponsor)
Avebe is a cooperative of starch-potato growers focused on the market. Traditionally we only focused on extracting starch from potatoes. However, by developing innovative methods we now also extract proteins from potatoes that are intended for the food industry. But there is more…. To us a potato is a source of opportunities with even more ingredients that can be
turned into value. In other words, if it’s in there, we’ll extract it! Every day 1,350 Avebe employees work on using all the opportunities
provided by potatoes to make life pleasanter, healthier and more convenient – for our clients, our members, and society as a whole.
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.
