Newport Beach, CA (July 17, 2023):  Fresh Solutions Network® (FSN) will feature A Cut Above® fresh whole, whole-peeled, and fresh-cut potato line at the July 28th IFPA Foodservice Expo in Monterey, California, booth #321.  A Cut Above® uses select potato varieties for superior performance to help streamline kitchen workflow and add profit to food service customers.

A Cut Above® is a premium-quality, three-tier potato program. Tier one consists of fresh whole white, and russet potatoes packed in 50-pound bags and cartons. Tier two includes whole-peeled potatoes available in 30-pound bags. Tier three comprises 30-pound cartons containing fresh-cut wedges, steak fries, sliced potatoes, and diced potatoes, which are especially important for the growing breakfast trade. Kosher option is available for all whole and fresh-cuts of potatoes. These potatoes enable foodservice operators to capitalize on the options patrons want.

The study also re-confirms that potatoes are America’s #1 favorite vegetable for seven years running1.
