Same product, different packaging
In collaboration with Latvian farmers, Sia "ALOJA-STARKELSEN" follows particular quality control system that allows our potato starch (distributed in blue package) to keep the "Zaļās Karotītes" ("The Green Spoon") status.
This label ensures and represents the following actions: environment-friendly farming, reasonable use of plant protection products and fertilizers. Furthermore, "The Green Spoon" label acknowledges that during the product production process the usage of raw materials produced in Latvia is at least 75%.
This winter we have modernized the packaging design for the Alojas potato starch in the blue packet. The structure of the potato starch together with its remarkable properties have remained the same, maintaining consistently high quality also in it's new-look!
