Potato Processing Industry

Duynie Group, founder of Novidon, takes over responsibility for all co-products released during the processing of potatoes, such as peelings, downgraded potatoes and sidestream starch.  Sidestream starch is released during production of potatoes into French fries and chips. Novidon is the largest purchaser of sidestream starch in Europe and has a unique business which relies on service, innovation and sustainability.

Sidestream Starch Recovery

With starch recovery machines, installed by Novidon, the starch is extracted from the process water. Starch is collected on site in big bags or containers and transported by Novidon to one of the factories in the Netherlands, Belgium and United Kingdom. The sidestream starch is refined into technical grade starch for applications in different industries.
