Sometimes looks can be deceiving; even though potatoes might look very similar, their moisture and starch content differ, resulting in over 5000 varieties of potatoes worldwide. We have carefully selected varieties that match the needs of our consumers whilst taking our environment into account.
The cultivars grown on our farms are selected based on their varietal characteristics to ensure that they flourish within our specific climate and soil conditions. By selecting cultivars that grow effortlessly in our specific environmental conditions we reduce the amount of pesticides and chemicals needed to ensure a healthy crop. Which is why our range currently include Sifra. Mondeo, Mondial and Elmundo Potatoes
We are continuously researching and testing new varieties to ensure that we provide the best product to our consumers.
