The Verdi and Opal varieties have brought us initial success in the crisps market and Eos has also proved to be an excellent variety in the table potato market. In Miranda we have another very promising variety, which is particularly suitable for the fish and chips market, because it tastes great and is very robust.”

The Solana Group has been marketing seed stock on the British market since 2013. Since the market was developing very quickly so it was decided to form its own company.
