HistoryEdit

The first industrialized production with potato started in 1848 when private distilling of liquor was banned. In 1879 Brennerienes Forening was created, as the first sector to be organised as a cooperative in the country, already dating back to the 1840s. Potato flour became an industrial product in the late 1800s, though not until 1941 was Potetmelfabrikkenes Salgskontor created as a cooperative. These two merged in 1981 to create Norske Potetindustrier that changed name to HOFF Norske Potetindustrier in 1994 when the local distilleries and production plants were merged with the distribution offices.
