Wada Farms Marketing Group, headquartered in Idaho Falls, ID, is a major supplier of potatoes from both Idaho and Colorado. Rand Green writes in an article for The Produce News that in its Colorado operation, the company appears well positioned to meet customers’ anticipated needs for Colorado potatoes through the beginning of the 2021 harvest.
“We have a good supply,” said Michele Peterson, head of the Colorado sales office in Monte Vista for Wada Farms. “We estimate it is going to take us through to the beginning of the new crop with good quality and good size profile.”
All indications are favorable to meeting customers’ needs through the summer. “The size profile looks good,” said Peterson. “We’ve got some lots that are very large, we’ve got some lots that are small so we should be able to take care of whatever a buyer may need.”
To this point, there has been nothing to indicate that there will be problems. Everything currently being packed and shipped is “absolutely” high quality, she added.
