The Little Potato Co. launching new variety
By Potatoes in Canada
Oct. 22, 2015 – The Little Potato Co. plans to introduce its newest proprietary creamer potato at the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit in Atlanta.
The grower-shipper plans to roll out the Chilean Splash variety as a limited release specialty item late this year in the U.S. and Canada.
The variety is to be packed in new 1.5-pound gusset bags.
It follows five years of scaled planting, harvesting and tasting and the company says the variety has unique and bold attributes, according to a news release.
The company also plans to display improvements to its microwave and oven/grill-ready packs that combine creamers with seasoning mixes.
The new “Three Cheese” flavor which combines the creaminess of cheddar, the sharpness of romano and the nutty richness of parmesan joins the existing line-up of barbecue blend, garlic herb and onion medley offerings.
