Potatoes – Product range

 

The product range of Jansen-Dongen is too big to explain as a whole. Therefore, a summary can be found here. 

 

Potatoes are being divided into four categories, which are based on their cooking-characteristics. Within every type of cooking there is a wide variety of breeds. The choice for a certain potato is based on taste, product quality and growth-characteristics. However, there are culinary potatoes, which are even a bit better than the others.

 

Below you can find the cooking types, with their associated types of meals and breeds.
