“Nowadays, consumer needs toward food consist of healthy, clean label without giving in on taste or texture. Avebe offers solutions which meet current trends such as free-from, high-protein, vegan, GMO-free and clean and clear labelling, which are suited to match the lifestyle and needs of the region’s customers. Our potato proteins are free-from allergen labelling and perfectly fit within confectionary products, gluten-free products, meat and meat analogues and dairy-free milks, said Michiel Puttman, managing director Proteins and Fibres at Avebe.
“Each year, the starch potato of those members are processed into high-grade ingredients for food, industrial and animal nutrition and feed industries. We extract everything from the potato, besides starch we use protein, fibres and new developments are on the way!
“Partnership is in our DNA. Remember that Avebe is a Dutch-German cooperative of starch potato farmers which is nearly a hundred years old and still bursting with ambition. Avebe controls the entire supply chain from the crop until the final product so we can ensure quality is maintained to the highest standards. Together with our members and breeding company Averis Seeds (daughter from Avebe) we are looking for the best potato varieties with the highest yield and most sustainable way of producing. Our aim is to achieve the right balance between cooperative profit, the environment and people: our members, employees and customers.
