The Higgins Group in Europe

The expansion of international trade has been the most significant contribution to the success of The Higgins Group in the early years of the 21st century, and the potential for growth continues. The multi-lingual sales team at Pommies, the Group’s trading company in France, is creating exciting new trading opportunities in the pursuit of ambitious targets.

Based in Reims, Pommies provides a springboard for marketing potatoes grown in France and other continental countries, to supermarket packers and major processors across Europe. The company’s growing international reputation has enabled the sales team at Pommies to develop a network across mainland Europe. As trade within Europe continues to strengthen, Pommies is also playing a vital role in moving potatoes into the UK as seasonal demands dictate, making a significant contribution to the success of Higgins’ supply chain.

Eastern Europe and Russia represent new markets for The Higgins Group. Currently, the company is working closely with its network of European growers to guarantee quality and continuity of supply into these markets. The Group is actively seeking partners across Eastern Europe with whom it can provide integrated solutions to potato supply. Already a substantial growing trial has been undertaken in Russia and major expansion is planned over the next few years.

The European continent enjoys widely differing growing conditions. Operating from Spain to Russia, from Poland to the Canary Isles, ensures that there is the right weather somewhere for the wide range of potato varieties by every valued customer.
