Quality control

Poldergold products need to be of the highest quality and to assure that we sample, check and adjust from the moment the potatoes get planted till delivery to the customers. All that starts during the growing phase of the potatoes when we check for quality and size. Our growers, growing supervisors and truck drivers make sure the potatoes get to our factory with as little damage possible.

When the potatoes arrive in Biddinghuizen they get checked in our quality centre via an automatic inspection line. Their average size, underwater weight, cooking- and frying qualities get determined and they get screened for potential flaws.

Based on the information we received from the quality centre the size sorter, optical sorter and washing plant are set to the characteristics of the batch. After all this there still is a human control to make sure only the best potatoes get to the customer.

When they’re completely checked and sorted they get weighed and packed into products ranging from 600 gram till 25 kilos. Our quality control regularly samples the quality of the end product on the day they we’re produced and on the expiration date.

We have multiple quality certificates, click on a certificate for a copy. Contact us (verkoopbinnendienst@schaapholland.com) if you’re missing a certificate.
