US: Cavendish Farms pulls Maine potato acreage

See on Scoop.itPotato News

Cavendish Farms will not plant potatoes in Presque Isle, Maine this year, but the move will not affect the company’s sponsorship of an industry research and education group. Cavendish owns 6,000 acres in Maine, said Mary Keith, vice president of communications for J.D. Irving Ltd., Cavendish’s parent company. Keith would not say how much of that acreage is for the fresh market. Cavendish Farms grows potatoes for the frozen market, and its sister company, Cavendish Produce, grows potatoes and other vegetables on Prince Edward Island, Canada, for the fresh market, according to the J.D. Irving website.
