Snowvalley and Aviko teamed up with Tomra for construction of new potato processing plant in China

SnowValley Agricultural Group and Aviko Group have decided to once again team up with their long-term processing partner TOMRA Sorting Food, for the development of a new state-of-the-art French fry processing facility. Both SnowValley and Aviko listed sustainability, quality and processing efficiency as an integral part of their business strategies, and echoing this vision, the 1.2bn RMB (ˆ151m) joint venture aims to deliver the highest standard of potato products to the premium segment of the Chinese French fry market. The new potato processing facility, located at Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province, China, will have an annual production capacity of 150,000 tons and is expected to be completed by September 2018. TOMRA’s flagship Eco steam peeling line and the recently launched cutting-edge sorting platforms, TOMRA 5A and TOMRA 5B, will play important roles in the facility’s success. More
