Over 70 years of rich experience serving the Potato trade

1947: André Roussineau, after beginning his career in a Swiss trading company, created a commercial agent’s office in Paris, dedicated to the potato and grain trades.

In the 1960’s: he became interested in developing potato varieties and thus became the first exclusive agent for Dutch variety breeders, introducing and developing on French soil, varieties such as: Ostara, Résy or Saturna. Very quickly, he became the market trader’s benchmark and the portfolio was enhanced with new German, English and Danish varieties such as Kaptah Vandel..
