Primaire tabs

In January 1960 a small group of local potato and vegetable farmers in the Edmonton, Alberta area decided to try an innovative alternative to conventional produce marketing. Soon these farmers formed what would become one of the most respected and efficient potato marketing groups in North America.

Centralized sales, marketing, washing, packing and distribution further cemented the idea of cooperation with the next generation of EPG growers, and they continued to ship fresh potatoes and other produce into markets in Edmonton and Calgary.

By 1997, EPG was producing in excess of 40,000 metric tonnes of Certified seed potatoes of various classes and generations. Marketing areas now include Canada, The United States of America, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, India and mainland China.

The 10 members of Edmonton Potato Growers produce excellent quality seed potatoes with the lowest possible disease levels and the utmost vigor for subsequent crop success.
