In the USA, KFC serves steaming hot mashed potato with their finger-lickin' good chicken.

In the USA, KFC serves steaming hot mashed potato with their finger-lickin' good chicken. If you eat at KFC restaurants on the eastern seaboard of the USA, the mashed potato you are served originates in Prince Edward Island and is made by AgraWest Foods in Souris, PEI.

Food Scientists at the Food Technology Centre worked with Jamie Trainor, plant manager at Agrawest Foods, to develop a high quality instant mashed potato mix made from dehydrated potato granules. A convenient, cost effective, and tasty product was prepared into a prototype batch and presented to KFC's purchasing team.

Recently, KFC has increased their volume and now AgraWest is supplying KFC with 200,000 kg of dehydrated mashed potato granules every month that are prepared in their restaurants by adding hot water. This product is a significant business for AgraWest which employs 100 people in Souris, PEI.
