That's how it all started
In 1954, Ernst Schnetkamp got self-employed with a wholesale business for seed potatoes and potatoes and during the same year he established a wholesale firm for potatoes. Sorting and processing of the traded potatoes was done on his parents' farm in Evenkamp near Löningen. The farm became the nucleus of today's enterprise.In the same year the "Südoldenburger Kartoffelhaus" was registered in the commercial register.
Three years later, in 1957, plans for the building of a new sorting centre at the old freight depot in Löningen were made and realized in 1958.In the sorting centre the seed potatoes were delivered, sorted, processed, stored and distributed. With its modern sorting equipment the company soon counted among the leading businesses of this kind in the region.
