Cyprus has long been famous for the high quality of its potato crop.
Red Soil Potato Industries has been operating since 1991, growing and processing the high quality potatoes that the “Red Soil Villages” (Kokkina Horia) of eastern Cyprus produce.
Based in a dedicated facility in Frenaros, Red Soil Potato Industries has been processing and exporting quality product to Greece, Croatia and the Canary Islands since Cyprus joined the European Union in 2004.
This as well as the Cyprus home market, where the local hotels and restaurants use Red Soil products extensively – both for good prices and for great quality
Grown in the fertile red soil of eastern Cyprus, a selection of favoured types of potato are hand-picked to ensure a blemish free product and packed close to the fields themselves to ensure a fresh product.
Our growers are qualified and registered with EUREPGAP, and meet all relevant European Standards.
