It is a highly satisfied board and management in Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S, which presented the consolidated financial statements for 2017/2018 at the company’s general meeting on Monday, 20 August 2018. The result is DKK 9.1 million before taxes and DKK 7.1 million after taxes. The company now has an equity of DKK 42.7 million.
The success is the result of a focused expansive strategy that the company has been pursuing determinedly since 2012. Here, the company invested in an expansion and modernization of the production plant of DKK 26 million.
Annual turnover has increased from approx. 50,000 tonnes in 2011/12 to approx. 115,000 tonnes in 2017/18. Which corresponds to over 300 million bags of chips. The increase in revenue is primarily ensured by investing in the market for crisp potatoes for Southern Europe.
The volume increase in revenue in 2017/18 has been over 25 %. Growth has occurred in almost all markets and activities.
However, Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S is no way resting on their laurels. They have just completed the construction of a new storage and production building of 4,550 m2 for the most advanced and future-proof plant for organic potatoes. The building contains storage facilities with a capacity of 5,800 tonnes of organic potatoes with the latest technology in temperature and humidity control. As well as a ultra modern sorting line with a capacity of 60 ton/hour and 30 ton/hour when washing and sorting.
The new investment will be introduced on Friday, August 24, 2018, with an Open House event from 10.45 – 16.00 – everybody is very welcome.
The opening speech is held by Martin Merrild, Chairman of Danish Agriculture & Food Council.
