NEWPORT BEACH, CA - Organic potatoes and onions are taking the spotlight at this year's Organic Produce Summit (OPS). Come July 13, Fresh Solutions Network® (FSN) is taking to Monterey, California, to showcase its newly re-designed Side Delights® Organic potatoes and onions on the show floor.
"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 Chief Executive Officer. "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 three-pound offering in combo mesh, straight Poly, and BioFlex™ 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."
Taking the spotlight at the show, the high-quality Side Delights brand offers a variety of choices for the organic and sustainable consumer, including Petite Organic Potatoes, Organic Potatoes, and Farmer's Table Organic Onions. Representing FSN's network during the show will be Basin Gold Cooperative of Pasco, Washington, and Sterman Masser Farms of Sacramento, Pennsylvania.
As FSN explained in a recent press release, the organic potato segment commands a premium in the marketplace and continues to grow with 5 percent of the potato category dollar share, up 1.6 percent versus last year. International Fresh Produce Association Global Insights state that, post-pandemic, 72 percent of consumers are willing to pay more for organic, 78 percent are willing to pay more for locally-grown produce, and 60 percent are willing to pay more for recyclable packaging.
Luckily for buyers and consumers alike, Side Delights Organic potatoes in the BioFlex package hit on all these key demands.
"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."
