Tomra and Farm Frites donate €2,000 to Unicef
Farm Frites, a Dutch family business specialising in fries and potato products, has been presented with a charity voucher worth €2,000 after winning The Golden Fry competition held by Tomra Sorting Food.
The competition was held at Interpom Primeurs, an exhibition for the potato, fruit and vegetable market in Kortrijk to celebrate the launch of the new Tomra 5B, a sorter for the vegetable, fresh cut and potato processing industries.
The 5B processed 20kg of French fries, one of them made of gold, and the representative who came closest to correctly guessing the moment when the golden fry would be ejected was awarded the voucher.
Ron Packbier, process engineer at Farm Frites, who entered the competition on behalf of the company, chose Unicef as the recipient of the charity voucher. “In everything we do, we strive to contribute to a more sustainable environment, which also includes our children, who are our future. All children deserve a healthy life and we’re happy to be able to contribute to the good work that Unicef does,” he says.
Steve Raskin, sales director at EMEA, Tomra Sorting Food, adds, “We are very pleased that Farm Frites chose Unicef as its charity because it’s a very worthy cause. We hope that the donation can contribute to a better world for children everywhere and give them the future they deserve.”
