Sacramento, Pennsylvania-based Sterman Masser Potato Farms will showcase its redesigned Side Delights Petite Potatoes line Sept. 14-16 at the SEPC’s Southern Innovations trade show in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The annual conference will highlight the latest innovations in the fresh produce industry, including product developments, packaging technology and brand approaches.
Side Delights Petite potatoes are No.1 grade potatoes available in medley, red, yellow, fingerling, duo and purple potatoes. They are non-GMO, pre-washed and sized for fast cooking.
The new packaging design features contrasting colors between the bag and the potato to brighten the display.
Sterman Masser’s Side Delights Petite potatoes are available in 1.5-pound and 3-pound stand-up gusset bags, various mesh pillow pack sizes and 1-pound netted pouch with wine bottle tag. All packages display the potato type and the pack size.
“As consumer demand for potatoes continues to grow and their confidence in cooking potatoes grows, we are proud to showcase our innovations again at the Southern Innovations show,” said Dave Masser, president.
Lela Reichart, EVP of marketing, added, “We are particularly excited about the new product packaging of our petite potatoes and invite attendees to visit us at booth No. 503.”
Side Delights potatoes are available in an assortment of types and sizes, including convenience-oriented items, such as its steamables, bakeables and grillables, and fresh-cut items including its “A Cut Above” potatoes.
