US: Potato exporter big on Colorado spuds; expanding to Mexico

Epic Produce Sales LLC will be involved in the Colorado potato deal, shipping from San Luis Valley storage and packing facilities until mid-August, according to Art Miller, president of the firm. Miller said about 95 percent of these spuds will be shipped into Mexico, consistent with Epic’s broad business plan. He noted that by using his Epic Potato brand he is increasing domestic sales. In late August and early September, Epic will fill its potato needs from Kansas with a freshly harvested crop. The bulk Kansas potatoes will be packed in Colorado facilities. Epic will move back to Colorado as fresh-crop potatoes are properly cured and ready for shipping in mid-September. “Everything looks good for the new Colorado crop, but we need a little rain,” Miller said. He added that San Luis Valley potato growers have collectively increased production by 1,000 acres this year. Epic, based in Phoenix, is expanding its export business to Mexico.
