Construction is underway on our state-of-the-art potato packaging facility and new Canadian head office. The Little Potato Company and Leduc County representatives celebrated the start of construction on a more than 200,000 sq. ft. packaging facility and head office.
The upwards of CAD 25 million (about USD 19.4 million) investment will allow the local family business to expand the production of its renowned creamer potatoes.
Angela Santiago, CEO of The Little Potato Company:
"This is a significant step for The Little Potato Company, which my Dad and I founded together in Edmonton more than 25 years ago."
"With the incredible support of our community, we are honoured to continue to grow our business here and provide a fresh, nutritious food to families across North America."
Construction officially kicked off in April, supporting dozens of jobs in the region.
