Potato System reports that the Irrico Group of Companies in Russia signed a contract with Frito Lay Manufacturing LLC to supply Stavropol-grown potatoes for the production of the Lay’s brand chips.

The Irrico group is involved in intensive crop and vegetable farming on 29,000 hectares of crop land in the Stavropol Territory in the south of Russia, producing a total of about 150,000 tonnes of agricultural products, including potatoes.

Deliveries of early potatoes will begin at the end of June this year. A modern high-tech vegetable storehouse, together with a high level of staff expertise, allow for the long term storage of potatoes during the winter-to-spring period and the delivery of stored potatoes until the end of June each year.
