We are getting ready for the Christmas Holidays and wish everyone a merry Christmas with thanks for the year soon gone by. It has been a very exciting year and lots of new things have happened in the company.
2018 is also set out to be a very exciting year with new interesting initiatives which we look forward to.
Finally Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S and Scanax International A/S want to thank all of you for the co-operation in 2017 and wish everyone a delightful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Open Days

Home from the Open Days in Holland with lots of new inspiration.
It is always fascinating to get out and meet all our customers, suppliers and other business associates and learn what is happening on the markets.
We have carefully selected the varieties which are going to be tested in our trial fields in 2018, and we hope that one of these varieties will appear to be just the one we have been waiting for.

Company visit

Throughout the past month, we have been fortunate to have visits by not less than 3 different groups who wanted to see our company.

We are happy to open our doors, and show the production and storhouses and give a presentation about our company.

We have had visits from many different groups, schools and associations.

Last month, Ulfborg Activity Center, Vinding Kultur & Velvære, and Senior Farmers, Herning, have been here.

Danish Lady Rosetta

We have processed Danish Lady Rosetta for 3 weeks. The yields are respectable and the quality is very good in most lots. But it’s not easy to get the fresh potatoes harvested, because of all the rain that has fallen. Today I witnessed how much our brave farmers and truckdrivers struggle, to deliver the potatoes we need.

Thank you to all of you for your great battle out there.

Delayed storing season

The storing season has finally started, we received the first load of organic potatoes for storing this Friday. This is 15 days later than last year.
The potatoes have been ready for harvesting for a while, but the large amounts of rain have prevented the growers from harvesting under the right conditions

The buildings are sold in Gadbjerg

davFrom 1st July 2017, FC Beton A/S has taken over the buildings in Gadbjerg from Scanax International A/S.
Scanax International A/S will of course continue its operation, from now on it is from Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S in Sunds.
We are looking forward to gathering all the activities in Sunds and look forward to continue the good cooperation with everyone.

Team Rynkeby Midt-Vest

Last week, we had the pleasure of welcoming Team Rynkeby’s Midt-West team. Paid us a visit to show off their beautiful clothes where our logo has found it´s way to the right thigh. 12 bicycle riders came by and thought the deposit was good enough to handle the final part of today’s stage.
The team was characterized by high spirits and great gratitude to all of their sponsors, which allows them to raise even more money for cancer-affected children.
We wish the whole Team Rynkeby a good trip to Paris.

Upgrade on the water treatment plant

20170405_142024In order to minimize the water consumption in our production, we have now invested in an upgrade of our water treatment plant.

Since we invested in the water treatment plant in 2012, the plant has not contributed as much to the saving of water as we hoped for. Besides that it has also been difficult to adjust the plant so it could run without problems. Therefore the board decided to invest in an upgrade of the plant.

One part of the upgrade consists of automatization done by flowmeters and turbidity measurements. The other part consists of a belt filter press with buffer tanks and pumps in order to dewater the sludge.

The upgrade has been delivered and installed by WAM Watertech.

Our production responsible Ingus have looked forward to having a well-functioning water treatment plant. Now we can just hope it will live up to our expectations.
