Parc Asterix is part of the French listed company Compagnie des Alpes. In addition to many leisure parcs in France, the Netherlands and Belgium such as Walibi and Bellewaerde, a number of European ski resorts also form parts of the company. ‘We have been working with Farm Frites’ for ten years says Éric Castelot, responsible for purchasing, contract negotiations and vendor relationships.
‘One of the main reasons for working together for so long, is the wide product range that Farm Frites offers. In France, our customers have a different preference to Belgium or the Netherlands. Farm Frites' product range offers plenty of choice for all the countries in which we operate to provide high-quality, easy to prepare potato products. In France we serve, to great satisfaction of our customers, Finest fries in our parcs for many years now, including Parc Asterix. The Belgian market prefers chilled French fries, so in Belgium we serve Farm Frites chilled fries. ‘
‘In addition, taste has played an important role in our choice for Farm Frites. We have issued a tender attended by a large number of fries suppliers. Farm Frites emerged as the best supplier in all aspects, it's that simple. The fries remain crispier for a longer time, the color is beautiful and the fries have good length. ‘
‘We also highly value the advisory role Farm Frites can play in the process of preparing tasty fries. For that reason Farm Frites invited us 2 years ago to visit its headquarters in Oudenhoorn (Netherlands) for an inspiring and instructive tour through the world of Farm Frites. We are very much looking forward to this trip. This invitation confirms us that we have a good reliable partner with Farm Frites, for now and for the future.‘
