Eagle Eye Produce's Dallin Klinger Discusses Expanded Onion and Potato Programs Ahead of Southern Innovations
IDAHO FALLS, ID - By definition, innovation means a new idea, method, or product. These three words are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the advancements that suppliers across the industry develop to continue pushing our industry forward. Southeast Produce Council’s (SEPC) Southern Innovations is a chance to highlight these cutting-edge advancements, and you can bet Eagle Eye Produce will be on the show floor.
“We’re happy to continue sponsoring and supporting Southern Innovations,” Dallin Klinger, Marketing Communications Manager, tells me. “This show is always a great opportunity to network, learn, see the latest trends in the industry, and find new ways to adapt and improve our company. It has been great being able to get together as an industry again this year, and we hope that continues moving forward. These shows are important to re-energize and have meaningful dialogues you can only have in person.”
During the show, Eagle Eye Produce will be showcasing the immense growth it has seen over the past year, as it has enacted crucial strategies to grow its current commodity programs and bolster its offerings. To do so, Eagle Eye has expanded its onion program with several key partnerships, which has more than doubled its acreage and exponentially increased its onion supply in both its Idaho and Oregon growing regions.
The supplier has also revealed investments across its potato, onion, watermelon, and vegetable packing and storage facilities all over the Western United States, implementing new state-of-the-art warehousing, packing, and sorting technology and equipment to reduce labor and improve quality. To further bolster its year-round supply, Eagle Eye has also expanded with brand-new climate-controlled potato storage facilities in Idaho.
“We’re optimistic about the upcoming season, which is set to be the biggest season yet here at Eagle Eye Produce,” Dallin adds. “Our messaging at Southern Innovations will be all about how we have gone back to our roots with smart innovations to ensure we can provide the best product we can as we strive to be the partner of choice for our customers all over the globe.”
