Sand Candy Sweet Potatoes are fresh and exceptional all year-round
Born from the synergy between sweet potato growers and retail experts, Sand Candy Sweet Potatoes provides a constant supply of fresh, exceptional-quality sweet potatoes year-round. But what makes Sand Candy truly extraordinary?
Imagine two top names in the produce industry coming together, each armed with unique superpowers. Sand Candy, a partnership between Bland Farms in Georgia and Battleboro Produce in North Carolina, accounts for over 7,000 acres between the two production areas. This represents more than 10 percent of the total production from those areas. The result? A dynamic partnership that offers the freshest, highest-quality sweet potatoes 365 days a year and a reputation for exceptional customer service.
"As the demand for sweet potatoes continues to rise, we are in a position to meet this demand for our retailers," says Joel Boseman, owner of Battleboro Produce. "We're in the business of growing, picking, and processing sweet potatoes using the safest measures and ship our produce around the world," said Boseman.
In addition to offering a constant supply of premium sweet potatoes, Sand Candy also boasts freight advantages that benefit retailers. "Being out of North Carolina and Georgia gives us some freight advantages. And we can tackle any problem retailers face with a high-quality solution," said Troy Bland, CEO of Bland Farms.
Taking freight one step further, retailers can combine sweet onions and sweet potatoes in one load – an advantage to hauling straight loads.
"Retailers can add more SKUs, which means quicker turns and thereby the freshest inventory," says Bland. Full trucks also equate to savings, which are passed down to retailers.
Sand Candy strives to provide retailers with maximum flexibility, whether it's through shipping or packaging. The company's large bagging capabilities and expertise give them the unique ability to handle all pack styles, including bins and cross-merchandising with onions.
From eye-catching displays to informative signage, Sand Candy equips retailers with the tools they need to make their sweet potatoes stand out on the shelves, attracting discerning consumers seeking the best.
For Sand Candy, pursuing high-quality solutions is not just a mission; it's a way of life. The company has meticulously built its reputation on fresh, high-quality sweet potatoes, maintaining strict safety measures and an unwavering dedication to supporting retailers' efforts.
At the heart of Sand Candy's ethos is a deep understanding that customer satisfaction is paramount. Whether you're a retailer looking to stock your shelves or a customer seeking the finest sweet potatoes, Sand Candy's commitment to excellence shines through. Their customer-centric approach ensures that every interaction is a positive experience characterized by promptness, attentiveness, and a genuine desire to meet your needs.
Sand Candy embodies a holistic approach to excellence that sets them apart in the industry. They don't just sell sweet potatoes; they create an experience, a partnership, and a commitment to quality, sustainability, and the environment that leaves a lasting impression on everyone they serve. And the company is getting ready to serve its latest crop of sweet potatoes. "We're excited about our sweet potato crop this year and are ready to ship these superfoods to retailers," says Bland.
Superfoods indeed! These super spuds pack a powerful punch for your health–something that is driving consumption. But don't just take our word for it.

So, it's no surprise you're seeing these nutritional powerhouses pop up in everything from sweet potato Buddha bowls to sweet potato pies. And Sand Candy is there to meet that consumer demand.
