Dutch potato starch company Avebe now a ‘Royal’

Dutch Potato Starch cooperative Avebe can now call itself ‘Royal’. In honour of its 100 years anniversary on November 11, the Dutch King, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander, awarded Avebe the so-called “Royal Warrant”.

At a festive gathering on November 14, René Paas, the Commissioner of the King in the Province of Groningen, presented the Royal Warrant to Bert Jansen, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Avebe.

The fact that Avebe received the Royal Warrant is a special honour for the Provincial Executive of Groningen too.

According to René Paas, “You are not the first cooperative to be awarded the Royal Warrant, as ten others went before you. However, Avebe is the first cooperative in Groningen to be given this honour.”

Bert Jansen of Avebe referred to Avebe as a strong and healthy cooperative. “I’m proud to receive this Royal Warrant on behalf of the cooperative. The crown on one hundred years of working together.”

Marijke Folkers-in ’t Hout, chair of the Supervisory Board, closed the symposium with the words “Royal Avebe, it is an honour for those who have worked hard to make Avebe stronger over the past one hundred years.”
