Since the 18th century, the Brittany region has been imposing itself as the expert in potato cultivation.
Thanks to a regular rainfall climate, potatoes grow in ideal conditions that give them an unchallenged quality and taste.
Since the setting up of the factory in 1995, Altho has developed partnerships with a constantly growing number of farmers regulating the ways to grow and harvest potatoes.
A sustainable partnership, quality supplies
Today, this sustainable partnership gathers over 250 Breton farmers over 1,700 ha and handle 75% of all supplies. In order to reduce transportation costs, all their farms are located in Brittany, within 170km from the production factory.
By sustainably committing alongside farmer partners, Altho secures its supplies, offers stable prices contractualized by harvest, provides counselling in agricultural practices and turnkey tools (plants, seedlings, treatments, irrigation, uprooting).
Finally, thanks to a specific mission statement, Altho ensures the monitoring of potatoes’ storage for optimal conservation from harvest (fall) to consumption (spring). The Breton company has perfect control of its products’ traceability.
