We are committed to a future of sustainable energy and are striving to become self-sufficient. We work in partnership with our many growers to produce natural and healthy potatoes, grown with nature in mind. We develop new varieties that require fewer inputs (such as nematicides, nitrogen and water), and are proud of our natural pest and disease resistant varieties - Vales Sovereign, Vales Everest and Lady Balfour.

Growing…
We lead by example in the adoption of reduced input farming systems such as Zynx, SOYL and trickle irrigation, which allows us to protect our natural habitat.

Our growing operation represents a leading model of Integrated Crop Management and we share our experiences with our growers, encouraging best practise across our supply base.

PackingĀ and processing…
Potato packing and processing is a high water consumption industry, but here at Greenvale, we have pioneered an award winning water recycling and treatment system called Cascade which reduces water consumption by at least 75%.

Swancote Foods, our very own processing unit allows us to process our cooking grade potatoes internally, thus efficiently utilising and further reducing our waste streams.
