Fresh is our Focus!
The San Luis Valley produces 92% of Colorado's potatoes, and is ranked in the top five potato producing areas in the United States, both in acres planted and production. Colorado is the #2 fresh potato shipper in the country, and that is why we say FRESH IS OUR FOCUS!
Compared to other high-desert and drier potato-growing regions, the Valley has a natural underground water aquifer, recharged from runoff from snowfall in the nearby mountains. Then, there is our central location that ensures fresh shipments nationwide.
While other areas profit from processing, Colorado pursues fresh varieties that bring profits to your department. In fact, we have introduced over 100 potato varieties since 1875! Our internationally-renowned potato breeding program at Colorado State University constantly develops new cultivars: varieties that meet the needs of a changing marketplace. This commitment to innovation and excellence is supported by state and Federal inspection systems that ensures the highest safety and sanitation compliance.
Yet we are well aware that in today’s marketplace having a superior product is not enough. Beyond the outward beauty of our region and our potatoes, there is our attractive customer commitment. Our long-standing reputation and experience shipping throughout North America and Mexico work to your benefit. That is why receivers rely on us to deliver seamless seasons of supply...and to do that with a smile. Our commitment to service is rare in this business, and has earned us long-standing loyalty with our customers.
