Fiesta – Fresh yellow and red fingerlings mixed with bold spices for a sizzling flavor.

These convenience packed potatoes are now available at select retail grocers alongside Alsum Farms & Produce full-line of conventional, organic and specialty potato offerings. The eye-catching packaging capitalizes on the trust and expertise of the farmer, Larry Alsum. The high graphic sleeve is made from 100% recycled paperboard and uses 35% post-consumer content to protect the potatoes from light to prevent greening when on the store shelf or in the home cooks pantry. In addition the ready-to-serve container can be recycled.

“According to the U.S. Potato Board’s market trends data, today’s consumers spend less time planning and preparing meals. The all-inclusive Microwave-Ready Potatoes with olive oil and seasoning brings fresh, convenient potato solutions to the time-starved consumer and millennial shoppers,” says Heidi Alsum-Randall, National Sales and Marketing Manager of Alsum Farms & Produce. “Our vision is to provide the consumer with a ready-to-serve healthy potato offering to meet the growing trends for fresh foods fast.”
