Potandon keeps potato pipeline well stocked

The shipping season is in full swing for Potandon Produce LLC, headquartered in Idaho Falls, ID. Ralph Schwartz, vice president of marketing and innovation, said the company is moving a full complement of premium potatoes from Idaho, including Burbank and Norkotah russets, reds, Klondike Rose, Klondike Royale and Klondike Goldust.Potandon

“We are also shipping russets, reds, whites and yellows from Washington, Maine, Wisconsin and Colorado,” he told The Produce News. “Value-added lines shipped from Idaho include our Klondike Express Microwaveable shelf stable line, our Green Giant Sauced Steamer refrigerated line and our Klondike Gourmet mini potato line.”

In early 2016, Potandon plans to focus on programs to develop market share for its newest potato, the Klondike Royale. “The Klondike Royale potato has a unique appearance with a smooth, light golden skin accented with bold, purple kiss-shaped markings on the skin and creamy, yellow flesh,” Potandon says at its dedicate website, www.klonikebrands.com. “Taste profiles reveal a creamy texture with a clean, slightly nutty taste and a spectacular plate presentation. The Klondike Royale potato is ideal for boiling, mashing and baking.”

Plans are also in the works to introduce some new items in late 2016.

“We’ve just updated our website, www.potandon.com, with a lot of new information,” Schwartz stated. “We continue to face the challenge of demonstrating the absolute health benefits from fresh potatoes as they have so many uses which combine other ingredients with them. We always try to present as many healthy recipes as possible for our consumers and encourage cooking with heart healthy oils.”
