Quality is very important to De aardappelhoeve. This is shown in our potato route.
Below we explain some of our eye-catchers.
When a client wants more information about the potatoes we delivered, we can trace the origin in a few simple clicks. We use an advanced and modern tracing system. Upon arrival, every shipment receives a batch number. We keep that same number throughout the entire process. Moreover, all the potato boxes have a chip that works with RFID technology. These miniscule chips contain a specific identification code that can be read remotely. Everyone that scans the chip receives an overview of the data: When was the batch made? Which cultivar does it contain? Where is the box stored? And so on.
That way we have an overview of our current stock. This is a big plus as we work with different cultivars. Subsequently, every step of the process is registered in our ERP system. This is a logistic module that joins all purchase quotations, packing orders and invoices into one software program. This guarantees everything is tracked and remains traceable from the soil until you put the potato in your mouth.
De aardappelhoeve has its own laboratory where the potatoes are inspected upon arrival. All of the inspection data are imported directly into our logistics ERP system by using a tablet. Depending on the purpose of the potato, we test different parameters such as the weight under water and the baking or cooking quality. Following the demands of our clients we then attach value to the quality. The ideal potato for consumption is tasty and beautiful. Before harvesting, we also take samples regularly. That way we guarantee the quality and we can assess early on the destination of the potatoes: ready for the fresh market or for the industry!
