Eagle Eye storage tech investments prolong red potato season

Eagle Eye storage tech investments prolong red potato season

Eagle Eye Produce, Idaho Falls, Idaho, continues to ship Idaho-grown red potatoes, thanks to investments in storage technology.

“Historically, the storage crop Idaho-grown red potatoes during this time of year see pressure bruising and the quality dips below strict guidelines to where suppliers look to pull from other regions,” Jared Neville, commodity director, said in a news release. “This new proprietary storage method has allowed us to better control our quality to where we can continue to sell our local product."

With a prolonged season, Eagle Eye’s red potatoes are integrated with its other year-round programs. The facility allows for one-stop shopping, with Idaho russets, reds, yellows and value-added products available. 

“We are proud to be able to continue to supply our customers directly with product grown, packed, and shipped by us,” Neville said in the release.

The company offers retail and foodservice pack styles under several brands names, with private label packing available, and a national sales and marketing team to support a global customer base, according to the release.
