Campaign Avebe 2014-2015 completed

12 Mar 2015
This season's potato processing operation at Avebe has reached its conclusion. The final potatoes for the 2014-2015 campaign have been delivered in Ter Apelkanaal. The last potatoes were processed at the Gasselternijveen location last week.

The quality of this campaign’s potatoes was better than last year. The starch content is 20.3%, which is slightly above the long-term average. The average tare figure was 6%, which is in line with the long-term average. The cooperative’s members largely utilised their delivery capacity.

The campaign started on time in August 2014 and was characterised from the beginning by major differences in the yield per region. Many starch potato growers achieved an above-average starch yield per hectare, but in one part of Avebe’s operational area growers faced heavy rainfall in the spring. This resulted in a lower yield in the affected areas, or in some cases no harvest at all.

Innovation by nature
Avebe is developing

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.
