Aviko has been creating value from potatoes for more than 50 years. What once began with 32 potato farmers around a kitchen table, has half a century later grown into one of the four largest potato processing companies in the world. Thus, Aviko has become a worldwide market leader of chilled chips and one of the four largest potato-processing companies in the world.
