“We have exhibited at OPS since it began in 2016, and we are proud to participate in this show featuring our organic potatoes and onions,” said Kathleen Triou, President and CEO of Fresh Solutions Network. “Organic-focused consumers desire purity in the food they eat. To meet that need, we provide transparency of these quality potatoes from where and how they were grown, stored, and handled. Side Delights® Organic potatoes are 100 percent non-GMO, USDA, and state-certified organic. The shopper-friendly packaging includes the top three most popular potato varieties – Red, Yellow, and Russet, available as a 3-pound offering in combo mesh, straight Poly, and BioFlexTM sustainable bags. Organic onions are sold under the Farmer’s Table® organic brand, including colossal, jumbo, and medium sizes of Red, Yellow, and White onions.”
The organic potato segment commands a premium in the marketplace and continues to grow with 5% of the potato category dollar share, up 1.6% versus LY. Organic volume sales represent a 3% share of the category1. Quality is the top focus for consumers, with 67% always considering quality when purchasing, in addition to other qualities that qualify produce as “premium.” Post-pandemic, 72% of consumers are willing to pay more for organic, 78% are willing to pay more for locally-grown produce, and 60% are willing to pay more for recyclable packaging.2 Side Delights® Organic potatoes in the BioFlex package hits on all these “premium” queues.
“At the show’s new product showcase, we are featuring our new Side Delights® Organic packaging,” added Triou, “It is a convenient way for show attendees to observe and compare the features of this new packaging against other potato packaging. We look forward to receiving the show attendee’s feedback.”
