Build a supply chain that gets better each season.
We’ll take the time to learn about your business and educate your team on available varieties, locations, farms, and transportation options to help you design your ideal potato portfolio.
Supply Chain Management
We can match you with farms that meet your facility’s demands—or you can select growers from our approved supplier network for yourself.
From there, we’ll handle all the planning, details, and contracts. Our team can manage factors like specific farms, varieties, size ranges, and seasonal adjustments. Your team can be as involved as they prefer.
Simplify your logistics.
Our logistics team can handle all of your transportation needs. We work with an extensive network of established trucking companies that specialize in carrying potatoes, and we maintain long-standing accounts with most major 3PL and asset-based transport companies.
