Our story

Short description
Royal Avebe is an international cooperative of growers of the planet’s most versatile crop: the starch potato. Through a collective and conscious effort towards a healthier future, we continue to develop and discover the sustainable ideas, foods, and products our society needs. 

The boilerplate description
In 1919, a group of Dutch farmers realised that there was more to the potatoes they were growing. Instead of selling their crops themselves, they started a cooperative to find buyers for the starch. That cooperative was Avebe and the starch was the first of a range of products they cultivated from potatoes. Today, we are more than 2,000 members strong, and feature a team of 1,500 professionals working with customers around the world, sharing the vision of a healthier and more sustainable future. Many of the things we’re working on would seem impossible to our founders – but we like to think they’d still recognise the way we go about making them happen. We’re still a cooperative. We’re still only using potatoes. And we’re still doing it together. In 2019, we even received the honorary Royal Warrant of the Netherlands: a recognition of our conviction that our members, employees, customers and society alike all benefit from our work.
