This is the base of our starch operations. We receive starch potatoes from growers and process them into native potato starch and fiber. Some of the native starch is then further processed into modified food starch. The facility also hosts our research and development center, which focuses on the development and application of starch in food and paper applications.
In addition to these production units, Sveriges Stärkelseproducenter has subsidiaries in Denmark, Poland, Germany, Czechia, and China.**
*In addition to the permanent employees, every year we employ seasonal workers in our starch operations, who normally work from September to January – the period during which our factories receive potatoes and produce native starch.
**Overseas subsidiaries are not included in this year’s report. We intend to include these in future sustainability reports.
