About us

We get more out of the potato. The potato is our raw product. It seems such an everyday crop, but in fact it's one of nature's special gifts.

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 more than 1,300 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. Find our latest annual report here.

Innovation by nature

And has been for almost 100 years.
Not always to become more or bigger,
but always to be better.

This ambition deserves a new visual identity.
