Robinson Fresh®, a division of C.H. Robinson, and Albert Bartlett have come to an agreement for providing potatoes in North America.

Albert Bartlett is a leader in the fresh and frozen potato market for the United Kingdom, and is increasing its presence in North America with headquarters in Denver and growers throughout the continent.

“When we heard Albert Bartlett was looking for opportunities to further expand into the North American market, we knew we wanted to get involved,” said Michael Castagnetto, vice president of global sourcing at Robinson Fresh. “Albert Bartlett plays in a unique space in the food industry that we see as the forefront of consumer trends — the company prioritizes flavor to drive the category and provides a premium option to offer a meaningful culinary experience. As Michelin-star chefs and home cooks alike are utilizing this product, we believe this is the future direction of the produce industry.”

In this new business relationship, Robinson Fresh is focused on providing customer-based solutions across the entire supply chain, while Albert Bartlett is focused on grower relationships and product innovation. The Albert Bartlett team is bringing their potato knowledge and history in the United Kingdom to North America to create a new eating experience for this region.
