Agrico Cooperatie

Agrico: your powerful partner from seedling to the supermarket shelf

A powerful, cooperative organisation that sells potatoes all over the world, breeds new varieties and develops innovative solutions. That sums up Agrico. From seedling to the supermarket shelf.

Seed potatoes

Each country and each population has its own preferences regarding shape taste and cooking quality. On top of that, each country or region has its own, unique cultivation conditions. Type of soil, climate, fertilisation and storage conditions are all key factors determining the end result.

We export seed potatoes to buyers all over the world. They can chose from a range comprising more than 80 varieties. At Agrico you will always find a potato that meets your specific requirements.

Table potatoes

Agrico produces quality table potatoes for the traditional market, as well as supermarket programs. For supermarkets Agrico organize year round programs with several varieties from soils in Holland, Cyprus, Malta, Israel, Egypt, Spain and Portugal, to guarantee customers excellent quality throughout the year.

Organic potato varieties are grown under the brand name Bioselect. Furthermore, Agrico supplies various specially selected potato varieties for the production of potato products such as crisps and French fries.
