OUR VALUES


Always up to date to offer you
the taste of past times
even today.


In love with our work to give you
the maximum every single day.


Only genuine ingredients
to satisfy even the most
demanding palates.


Origins

Maybe not everyone knows that potatoes mature only once a year. To ensure our products are fresh 365 days a year, we select only the best European suppliers in Spain, Italy and Germany. That’s where the unique taste of Amica Chips is created, because when you know where the raw materials come from then you know you can trust them.




Storage

The potatoes are stored, which means they are rested and conserved naturally at a temperature of 15°C with 90% humidity, in our warehouses without light sources and in absolute silence, in order to maintain flavour and taste and all sensory features intact.


WASHING

The potatoes are sent into a large sized hopper where they’re peeled using an abrasive system. The skin is never completely removed: it will be used to ensure the final product has a more decisive flavour.




CUTTING

The potatoes are sliced. The thickness of the potato depends on the type of product: thicker slices for the Amica Dorata quality and Alfredo’s, thinner for the classic Amica Trasparente. Then they are washed again to eliminate any residual starch.


FRYING

The washed and sliced potatoes are immersed into a large tank full of pure sunflower oil. The temperature in the fryer is 180°C to obtain the perfect unmistakeable golden colour of Amica Chips.




PACKAGING

After being dried of excess oil, the potatoes are salted and packed. Now they are ready to set off for distribution to arrive on your table.

FRIEND OF THE ENVIRONMENT

Every phase of the production has been conceived to reduce pollution to a minimum and to obtain products which truly respect the environment.

Filtering of the fumes produced by the fryers. Thus ensuring emissions are within the parameters set by law (since1990).


Purification of water of waste residue. Re-used and released clean back into the atmosphere.


Renewable energy obtained thanks to the use of waste from the peelings thus covering a part of the energy needs of the company (since 2000).

WE ADHERE TO A NEW CONTROL SYSTEM

HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) is a self-control system which aims to evaluate the possible risks at every stage of the production process which might impact upon food safety. In this way, it activates preventive measures without concentrating only on the finished product. In other words, this system aims at monitoring every step in the food production and distribution process.
