If you are paying attention, you will notice that in late July through August, there are more sizable displays of delicious potatoes. The Belgian potato season for the production of consumer potatoes destined for the chip industry can be divided into two parts:

•             The early season (from the end of May to the end of August): the production of early potatoes occurs in sandy Belgian soils, primarily in Flanders, and offers a choice between a number of early varieties suitable for fries with a shorter growing season. These varieties are usually lifted before their skin becomes hard so the idea is not to keep them for a long time.

•             The storage season (from September to June of the following year): as the name says, it concerns potatoes that can be kept an entire season as long as they are stored professionally. The typical Belgian fries characteristics has its own flavour, texture, colour and length.

It takes a few weeks for the harvest, washing, polishing and packing process. Then they are shipped to our customers around the world.
