In the backstage of product development at Aviko

Every day, more than 10 million people enjoy Aviko potato products. This is an accomplishment we take pride for and work hard to sustain. Want to be part of our dynamic team and contribute to the future success of Aviko's products? Then the three departments of Aviko's R&D are a good fit for you.

Innovation and Production Development

This is where we team up to apply a multi-disciplinary approach to develop new and tasty potato products. We brainstorm with our customers, marketing department and suppliers. We are responsible for the new product from its development to its initial production! We research ingredients, products and techniques to support our product development projects. The shift to special potato products and the trend towards conscious and healthy eating will offer you plenty of challenges. Have any ideas to share?

Processing Technology and Engineering Research

In this department we are constantly working on new technologies to improve our production efficiency.  You will be engaged in big investment projects, such as building a completely new factory. We are also responsible for the automation of these factories. Are you an innovator? Then this is your team!


Our Agronomics and Projects team focuses on increasing the yields and quality of potatoes cultivated by our growers. We do this by researching various sorts, improving seed quality and optimizing cultivation and storage. We are also responsible for food safety and sustainable cultivation.
