Aug 9, 2021Eagle Eye Produce starts shipping new crop of Idaho potatoes
Eagle Eye Produce will begin shipping the new crop of russet, red and yellow potatoes from its Idaho packing facilities the week of Aug. 9-13.
The annual potato harvest is underway again for Eagle Eye Produce in Central and Eastern Idaho. Over the next few months, Eagle Eye growers will harvest thousands of acres of world-famous Idaho potatoes.
“We anticipate a good harvest this year with excellent product available to go to market with, although this growing season has seen some challenges,” said Coleman Oswald, director of sales at Eagle Eye Produce, through a press release. “We experienced higher than normal temperatures this summer with very little precipitation, which may lead to lower than anticipated yields. With the reduced yields, we are anticipating strong and active markets this season, which we are currently seeing take shape as harvest begins.”
Along with new crop, Eagle Eye Produce will be introducing new packaging, including new Harvest Select retail bins. They have also invested heavily into their packing and storage facilities in Idaho over the past year, with state-of-the-art equipment that will reduce labor, improve quality and contribute to more consistent packs year-round.
