Eagle Eye Produce Anticipates a Good Harvest of Potatoes this Year
Even though the potato growing season has seen “some challenges”, according to Coleman Oswald, Director of Sales at Eagle Eye Produce, the company’s expert anticipates a good harvest this year “with excellent product available to go to market”.
“We experienced higher than normal temperatures this summer with very little precipitation, which may lead to lower than anticipated yields. With the reduced yields, we are anticipating strong and active markets this season, which we are currently seeing take shape as harvest begins,” added Oswald.
Eagle Eye Produce have started shipping new crop russet, red, and yellow potatoes from their packing facilities in Idaho, recently.
Along with the new crop, Eagle Eye Produce will be introducing new packaging, including new Harvest Select retail bins. They have also invested heavily into their packing and storage facilities in Idaho over the past year, with state-of-the-art equipment that will reduce labor, improve quality, and contribute to more consistent packs year-round.
According to the company’s statistics, they grow, pack, and ship over half a billion pounds of premium potatoes each year.
