Remarkable growth continues for Belgian potato-processing sector in 2015
The remarkable growth of the Belgian potato-processing sector in the past few decades has continued in 2015.
In 2015 just under 4 million tonnes of potatoes were processed into fresh or frozen fries, mashed potato products, crisps, precooked potatoes, flakes and granulate. With 3,970,595 tonnes of processed potatoes, the sector experienced 4.4% growth compared to 2014.
With its annual exports of approximately 418,000 tons, Flandria is Europe’s biggest vegetable brand. So it’s no surprise that the label is well known, especially in the German and French trade. You can get to know the products and sixteen fruit and vegetable suppliers at Fruit Logistica. You will find them on the VLAM stand (Stand B05-B07) in hall 6.2, together with seven colleagues from the potato sector on stand B08 and two fruit tree suppliers, also on stand B08.
It has never been easier to find a supplier of Belgian fresh produce. Via the new and improved www.freshfrombelgium.com the VLAM (Flemish Agricultural and Fisheries Marketing Board) guides the visitor to a user-friendly exporters’ data base. There you can select product groups or specific products, link them with a particular country or region, and of course also search by company name.
