India: New potato processing plant will produce 35,000 tonnes annually

On August 28, the Indian manufacturer of French Fries and Potato Specialities, HyFun Foods, formally inaugurated its new production plant. HyFun Foods is a unit of M/s. Asandas & Sons, a firm that has existed for over 50 years, engaged in the wholesale business of vegetables such as potatoes, onions, etc. operating from Mehsana, Gujarat. North Gujarat has emerged as a leader in the cultivation of potatoes for processing. All major processors source their potatoes from this region, therefore HyFun is at an advantage as it enjoys a good relationship with potato growers in and around North Gujarat and hence will be able to leverage a continuous supply of the best potato varieties for their processing plant. The plant – built with Dutch Potato Processing equipment – will produce a range of frozen french fries and potato specialities.
