Allied Potato's Matt Hornbuckle Discusses Chipperbec™ Brand and Foodservice Offerings
PASCO, WA - Without potatoes, what would restaurant menus look like? I’m certain they would be a sad sight, because every foodservice behemoth should count the mighty spud among its offerings. I spoke to Allied Potato’s Matt Hornbuckle, Director of Sales and Marketing, to learn about what the company has to offer those in the foodservice sector.
“Allied Potato is a year-round supplier for a premium Kennebec style frying potato that has consistent frying quality along with consistent supply,” Matt said. “We are new to this space in terms of direct marketing, rolling out our Chipperbec™ brand less than 5 years ago, although we have been a grower of this type of potato for over four generations in the Kern County area.”
Showcasing its premium frying potato and Chipperbec, which makes delicious fresh-cut French fries and potato chips, the company will also be promoting its 50 lb Chipperbec carton, which is available for purchase at a number of its facilities around the States.
“Chefs demand our potato for its consistent frying characteristics, which replaces some of the other original potato types currently being sold,” Matt shared. “We have been in the space for a long time, but as a supplier and not a marketer. Since my entrance into the company, I have cultivated us into a direct marketing supplier position creating a brand for our potatoes directly to the food service industry.”
In addition, the company recently completed a state-of-the-art packing facility in Pasco, Washington. It also introduced two new farming and packing areas to its program: Quebec, Canada and Morocco.
