Prince Edward Island French Fry Manufacturer Cavendish Farms is importing a larger than usual amount of potatoes from other parts of Canada and the United States to make up for a local shortfall in supply.
Potato company W.P. Griffin Inc. is launching 'Potato Cuisine' Microwaveable Mini Potatoes with selected spices from around the world: quick and convenient potato trays that take only 6 minutes to prepare in the microwave.
On Prince Edward Island the Lands Protection Act limits the maximum size of land a landowner or corporation can own. Robert Irving, president of processor Cavendish Farms said current limits should be doubled, so potato farmers can increase their yields.
