Annual Report 2015/2016

In 2015/2016 we made good on our promise ‘growing with our potatoes’. The year was characterised by satisfying results, steady growth and a few nice milestones. Last year we sold more seed potatoes than in previous years. This ensured a good return on shareholders’ equity and a competitive price which we could pay to our seed potato growers; the two most important financial objectives for our company.
