Committed to offering the foodservice sector as well as discerning consumers in Sri Lanka premium food products, Eiger Holdings recently partnered with leading food supplier, Aviko, to distribute a range of frozen potato-based snacks and light meals. Founded and headquartered in the Netherlands, Aviko, is one of the world’s largest potato processing companies, and is a worldwide market leader in fries.
Aviko believes that each step in the manufacturing process of their potato products adds value. The company adheres to the best practices, from harvesting the best potatoes from certified growers to using innovative and environment-friendly processing, packaging and distribution methods. All raw ingredients used in every product are also traceable.
Over the years, Aviko has consistently introduced innovative potato products to the market, most notably, its bestselling Super Crunch fries. Considered the crispiest fries ever made, they get their ‘crunch’ from a special coating that gives each fry a longer holding time. Other fries in the range include Super Longs, Thick Cut, Thin Cut, Shoestring and Sweet Potato, which have won the hearts of chefs and foodies around the world. They are also made from carefully-selected Dutch-grown potatoes and pre-cooked in sunflower oil that contains 88% unsaturated ‘good’ fats, making them a healthier alternative to regular fries.
More recently, the company also introduced a range of appetizers, which include classics such as gratins and trendy street food-inspired treats like jalapeño bites and habanero nuggets. Trendy and unique in flavour, these appetizers are ideal for the modern consumer who is curious about global cuisines and conscious of quality.
A wide selection of Aviko fries, snacks and appetizers are now available at leading supermarkets and on the official Eiger online shop.
