De Kubbe has made great technological advances with the implementation of a customised software system, in which all crates and stocks registered, along with the complete administration.
Nowadays, De Kubbe only processes certified seed potatoes, and the team complies stringently with the highest possible hygiene standards. The Ring Rot hygiene protocol is applied; a protocol introduced by and for the sector, comprising hygiene guidelines for all links in the chain.
Each year, the company cuts 6000 – 10,000 tons of potatoes, while 13,000 – 18,000 tons of seed potatoes pass through the washing line. Due to growers increasingly demanding smaller sizes of seed potatoes, a tuber counter has been installed in the washing line this year. This gives insight not only into the weight but also the number of tubers during the treatment process.
