Allied Potato's Matt Hornbuckle Discusses New Chipperbec™ Facility and More
PASCO, WA - Let’s talk about our favorite foodservice items! I’ll go first: One of my favorite foodservice items is French fries, which is why PMA Foodservice attendees probably saw me hanging around the Allied Potato booth for a little bit longer than necessary. But what can I say—I had to find out everything I could about how Allied Potato is making sure it’s supplying foodservice operators with potatoes year-round thanks to its growing program.
I chatted with Matt Hornbuckle, Director of Foodservice Sales, who disclosed to me some juicy details on how Allied Potato is helping meet all of foodservice operators' potato needs.
“We just rolled out a new facility in Pasco, Washington, and a new farm in Quebec, Canada, that’s going to feed the supply on the East Coast,” Matt shared with me on the bustling show floor. “We’re excited to be a presence in the food industry.”
Allied Potato is a year-round shipper of processing potatoes. These potatoes are then delivered to members of the foodservice industry around the nation who rely on Allied Potato’s goods to make potato chips and fresh-cut French fries.
“We have multiple varieties within our Chipperbec™ family that we branded as Chipperbec for its low sugar, high starch, and consistent frying quality that chefs demand,” Matt continued.
