Platform for online trade in potatoes now a reality

An online market for the professional purchase and sale of potatoes worldwide, named Potato Market, is now a reality. It is a project launched recently by the company Agromar, which has facilities and grow potatoes in France and Spain, and is part of the company Intersur, a leader in the production of new potatoes in Spain. “Some years ago, there was already a similar initiative, but either because it was not the time or because it did not have adequate resources, it didn’t work out. That doesn’t mean that Potato Market isn’t a pioneering idea, since it is the first digital platform of its kind; the first online market for producers and professional buyers of potatoes,” explains the person in charge of this project, Ángel Muñoz, Director of Agromar and Intersur. “We know that producers want to have a tool that puts them in direct contact with the market in real time. Potato Market does not aim to be a revolutionary tool; its goal is simply to allow professionals in the sector to have a digital tool that complements traditional channels for potato trade.”  More
