For more than half a century, Agrico has been committed to supplying high-quality, healthy potatoes with high yields worldwide. From seed potatoes for the traditional market in Algeria and varieties for industrial processing in France to ware potatoes for the Dutch market.
Over the past 50 years, Agrico has grown into a powerful cooperative working with local partners, Agrico partners and subsidiaries in more than 80 countries. In this way, we supply local growers and the population with high-quality seed and consumption potatoes. Every season again.
With a large organization like Agrico comes a large team. Each and every one of them is fully committed to the company every day and they love to tell you what Agrico means to them. In the coming months we will let them have their say through the videos below. From our Dutch grower who works hard every year to grow the best quality potatoes to our partners from countries like Serbia and Sudan.
