Country Comfort Foods: World Class Potato Products

In recent years, North American potato producers have suffered from some very unfortunate conditions in harvesting and production of potatoes due to environmental issues, labor shortages and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Almost 80% of North American potato cultivation and processing comes from the relatively small geographic area of the Pacific Northwest in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Because of their proximity, the weather that hits one state affects the others, causing major disruption in potato crops across the region. We expect this to be an ongoing issue. Changing weather patterns and escalating operational costs have created multiple obstacles for sufficient supplies of potatoes. Recent early frost damage caused a major interruption of the growing season for potatoes, resulting in supply shortages and proper sized potatoes for critical French Fry length. To combat the ongoing, unpredictable conditions in the Northwest, we have created a “Diversification Strategy,” providing a safety net to your supply chain of products. The key benefits we provide are:

  • Uninterrupted supply of high quality both raw materials and processed items
  • Stabilized pricing for better margin control
  • Domestic inventories that meet all USA specifications for potato products
