España: Launch of first online market for professional trade of potatoes
The first online market for the professional purchase and sale of potatoes worldwide is now a reality; a project launched by the company Agromar, which has facilities and plantations in France and Spain and is part of the company Intersur, a leader.
"Some years ago, there was already a similar initiative, but either because it was not the time or because it did not have adequate resources, it didn’t work out. That doesn’t mean that Potato Market isn’t a pioneering idea, since it is the first digital platform of its kind; the first online market for producers and professional buyers of potatoes," explains the person in charge of this project. Ángel Muñoz, Director of Agromar and Intersur.
The project was born from the collaboration of Agromar in innovation projects with a Spanish university. "They presented this idea to us and we immediately saw its potential and realised we, as a company specialised in potatoes, had to support and promote it," he says.
