Within the scope of a unique, integrated potato-growing system, the entire process chain at Agrarfrost comes from a single source: from the breeding of the seed potato, propagation, planting, growth, harvesting and storage to the manufacture of branded products.
The company decides when, where, how and which variety will be grown, depending on weather conditions, the customer's requirements and the needs of the production. To satisfy all these requirements a basis is established by sophisticated, meticulously planned farming. This crop-growing support plays a major role in achieving the excellent Agrarfrost quality.
Throughout the entire cultivation and harvesting process the contract farmers have direct contact with one of the 30 crop consultants from Agrarfrost. With its contract farmers Agrarfrost has agreed on a five-year crop rotation. As a result, excellent quality can be guaranteed whilst the procedure conserves natural resources and avoids diseases. In the winter prior to growing, each area is examined to make sure it is suitable. Here too the company's own agricultural engineers play an active role.
Nothing is left to chance, not even fertilisation. It is preceded by the taking of soil samples, to check nutrient content and hence the nutrient requirement. Plant analyses are used to determine current nutrient supply. Based on all this data the crop consultants determine the amounts of fertiliser and the application dates, thereby avoiding over-fertilisation. Field work is also subject to constant monitoring. This means we can process top-quality fresh raw materials to make excellent fresh frozen end products the whole year round!
Carefully selected cultivation areas
Agrarfrost has its own growing areas round its production sites. The cultivation areas are selected very carefully. Only the best cultivation areas in Germany with the most mineral nutrients are considered. After all, both taste and quality can vary according to the climate and the quality of the soil. This way we can offer you unique and premium quality.
In our own growing areas covering over 8,000 hectares we cooperate with about 200 contract farmers, who are committed to the strict Agrarfrost quality system. Most of their growing areas are close to the processing plants in Aldrup and Oschersleben, which ensures shorter transport distances and thus relieves the environment. When it comes to potato seed we only select the most suitable varieties with the best properties because at Agrarfrost everything comes from a single source: from self-grown, top-quality seed potatoes to the delivery of the finished products. This is how we ensure real Quality Made in Germany.
