Major German potato trader joins Europatat

One of Germany’s major potato traders, Fritz Jungnickel GmbH & Co. KG has joined Europatat. The company was established more than 100 years ago in the area of Dresden, in the heart of the Ruhr region.

Today Fritz Jungnickel is active from the Neuss region in the trade of seed, early and ware potatoes. With a wide knowledge and many contacts of the growers from the south of Spain, the import of early potatoes from this country is one of the main interests of the German company that has recently joined Europatat.

Fritz Jungnickel has also been the exclusive representative of the British company Drywite for their preservatives for potatoes, fruits, and vegetables.

Thomas Herkenrath, the managing director of the company, has been involved in Europatat for many years. He served as vice president of the association for 6 years and he is the current Chairman of the RUCIP Commission.
