Linking Potato People all around the world

15-03-2017

At HZPC we believe that people make the difference. Businesses don’t consist of buildings, products or money. Businesses thrive when people are passionate about what they do. Our passion is potatoes.

Making a difference

Together with our growers and chain partners we continuously improve our knowledge of potatoes and continue to develop. Our ultimate mission is to make a difference in the world by contributing to the development of responsible food for a growing world population.

The biggest contribution can be made if Potato People around the world work together. That is why this year we want to make an extra effort in linking Potato People around the world. People are key to achieve innovation, sustainability and growth. Together we can achieve more!

Sharing stories

Each month we proudly share the story of one of our colleagues or partners. In January it was Basel Tarabichi, importer and distributor in Syria and representative of HZPC Company, who told us his story. In February we shared the story of the Indian potato dealers Himanshu Patel and Manohar Lal Shardiya. And this month is dedicated to Amanda Ayres from Europe's No. 1 snack producer: Intersnack.
