Europatat welcomes its new member, the German company Fritz Jungnickel GmbH & Co. KG, one of the major potato traders in Germany.
Founded more than 100 years ago in the area of Dresden, the company was newly founded after the war in the heart of the Ruhr region. Located for more than 60 years now in Neuss, the Fritz Jungnickel company is active in the trade of seed, early and ware potatoes.
