Avebe

Avebe is a cooperative of starch-potato growers focused on the market. Traditionally we only focused on extracting starch from potatoes. However, by developing innovative methods we now also extract proteins from potatoes that are intended for the food industry. But there is more…. To us a potato is a source of opportunities with even more ingredients that can be turned into value. In other words, if it’s in there, we’ll extract it!

This, our fifth Avebe Magazine, is dedicated to our centenary. On 11 November, Avebe celebrates its 100th anniversary and festive activities have been planned throughout the year to celebrate it!

In this magazine we look mainly back, but also a bit ahead. On 13, 14 and 15 September, our anniversary festival was held at the Ter Apelkanaal production site and with the Beuling family, who grow starch potatoes for us in Eerste Exloërmond. The festival was attended by more than 3000 members and employees.

Our aim was to bring together members and employees in all the activities organised as part of the anniversary. And that’s precisely what we saw happening. The enthusiasm of the visitors and the many volunteers was heart-warming.

The cycling tour along all our European locations by employees and members was another highlight. This tour raised a huge amount of money for the ‘Make-a-Wish’ foundation. This foundation makes the dreams of seriously ill children come true.
November will see the publication of the anniversary book looking back at 100 years of Avebe. All members and employees will be receiving this book as a gift!

We also look to the future in our upcoming annual report 2018/2019, in which we set out where our journey will take us in the future. The report is being redesigned to make it transparent to all stakeholders. It contains a combination of financial information and information about our strategy, our sustainability plans and an assessment of the risks and the measures we take to reduce them as much as possible.

After 100 years, Avebe is still alive and kicking!
