Our preferred varieties –
Maris Peer, Charlotte Nicola and Exquisa
We specialise in the year-round supply of New Potatoes from our member grower base in the UK and overseas and our preferred varieties are Maris Peer, Charlotte Nicola and Exquisa. These varieties are supplied to our customers either whole crop or split graded into specific size fractions from our grading facilities in Suffolk and Lincolnshire.
From a grower perspective, great attention to detail is needed with these loose-skinned potatoes to hit the exacting quality requirements of these premium markets where demand over the past decade has been strong. The field team at AKP supports our growers though the key growing season and the critical harvesting period ensuring crops are lifted at the optimum size to maximise value and grower return.
