Our history

It all begins with 32 potato farmers around a kitchen table. Aviko starts its production of chilled fries in Hoog Keppel, and the first frozen products follow soon after.

Relocation to Steenderen, where an old brick factory offers more scope for our growing ambition. Aviko turns its gaze across the border, searching for opportunities to produce new potato products.

Aviko takes the first steps outside of the Netherlands and initiates Rösti production in Switzerland, among others.

Years of growth ensue and Aviko reinforces its position within Europe, notably in the German and French markets. The wall comes down and Aviko becomes a market leader in Eastern Europe thanks to the construction of a factory in Poland.

Aviko is growing - even outside of Europe - into a world player who dishes up superior potato products in more and more countries.

Nowadays, our focus is mainly on expanding our range by offering superior quality potato specialties. Aviko enters into partnership with Eurofrits, with their appetizers forming a great addition to our range. The acquisition of Eurofreez from Belgium adds even more expansion: mash potato and potato gratins. There is growth outside of Europe too, through the acquisition of Chinese fries producer Hongyuan Louis.

Cosun

Aviko is proud to be part of Dutch parent company Cosun, a cooperative for plant-based foods, ingredients for animal feed, circular fodder, bio-based solutions and green energy. Together, we are taking the lead in showing everyone the limitless possibilities for plant-based food, plant-based products and plant-based energy.
