Jul 20, 2021Fresh Solutions Network to showcase A Cut Above potato line at PMA foodservice show
Fresh Solutions Network, LLC will feature its A Cut Above whole fresh and fresh-cut potato line at the PMA Foodservice Expo in Monterey, California.
A Cut Above uses select white and russet potato varieties, some with higher solid content and lower water, to yield consistently superior house-made potato chips and french fries.
A Cut Above potatoes are premium-quality whole white and russet potatoes packed in 50 pounds bags and cartons. A Cut Above is also available in 30 pounds fresh-cut cartons; russet steak-cut fries, white shoestring fries, white 3/8” fries-skin on and white 3/8” fries without skin. New to the A Cut Above line is a diced Red potato with skin on, especially important for the growing breakfast trade. A 2021 Consumer Attitude & Usage Study conducted by Potatoes USA reveals that “any potato option” and “fries” are America’s Nos. 1 and 2 favorite side dish and takeout side dish choices. The study also re-confirms that potatoes are America’s favorite vegetable.
“Since 2014, we’ve been bringing the foodservice sector premium-quality potatoes that make superior house-made chips and fries — a very profitable and still growing segment for on-premise accounts,” said Kathleen Triou, President and CEO of Fresh Solutions Network. “The superior taste and appearance of these products give operators the best foundation to create signature potato items that keep their patrons coming back for more.”
A Cut Above potatoes is available exclusively from the partners of Fresh Solutions Network. Basin Gold Cooperative from Washington, Sun-Glo of Idaho, and Sterman Masser Farms of Pennsylvania will all be attending PMA Foodservice Expo on behalf of the Network. Visit booth 218.
