ALOJA-STARKELSEN, located in the northern part of Latvia, was founded in 1991 as the first Latvian food company with foreign capital. Our largest stakeholder is the 'Sveriges Stärkelseproducenter Group' with their headquarters based in Kristianstad, Sweden.
As a potato starch manufacturer ALOJA-STARKELSEN is not huge but it has become a leading organic potato starch producer in the World. We produce native, cold-swelling (pre-gel) and dried organic potato starch. All the organic starch potatoes are produced with longterm contracts by local farmers in Latvia or neighbouring Estonia and Lithuania.
Recently ALOJA-STARKELSEN has begun production of proteins and flours from Organic Brown Pea and Fava Beans to answer the growing demand of high quality organic plant based proteins and protein-rich flours. Brown Peas is a local traditional crop that fits perfectly in the crop rotation of our potato growers .
ALOJA-STARKELSEN also produces a wide range of other food products like baking powder, vanilla sugar, sauces, desserts and much more. These can be offered as private label products to our customers.
In ALOJA-STARKELSEN we have a deep understanding of product development and applications. We can help our customers to understand the best solutions for using starches and plant based proteins in their products. Or we can even develop customer products in our test kitchen. Contact us if you think you could benefit from our application support!
We are currently employing 82 staff members and the company's annual turnover is 8.0 million EUR.
Approximately 80% of our production is exported to other European Union countries, North America and Asia.
