Monday April 22nd. the employees from Danespo visited Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S. The purpose of the visit was, that Danespos and our employees should gain better insight and understanding of, the different ways the two companies work, in order to better exploit the synergies that lies in the collaboration.
The visit started with coffee, during the coffee Erik Thorsen explained about the production at Thorsens Chipskartofler. Then there was a tour around the company. After the tour Steen Bitsch and Erik Thorsen in turns presented the two companies and the companies corporate culture. Hereafter the debate was open. The day ended with a cosy dinner.
The visit was a positive experience, where the participants got to know each other and the two companies better.
Because Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S has begone to sell an increasing quantity to Italy, Jesper, Erik and Jacob were visiting the Italian cooperators, and one of the factories there is delivered to.
Italy has a big production of crisps, and a big part of the potatoes for that are imported, caused by the hot climate, which makes storage very difficult, because the potatoes not will get firm for stock, when the harvest takes place in 25-30 degrees.
When the climate is different from the Scandinavian, the Italians handling of potatoes is different too, which challenges Thorsens Chipskertofler A/S’ normal procedure for handling and delivery.
The visit in Italy gave a good insight into how the potatoes were handled after Thorsens Chipskertofler A/S has delivered to the factory, and an understanding of, why they did as they did. Furthermore the relation between the participating from Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S and the cooperators from Italy were strengthened.
