Save the potato. Feed the world, better.
Everyone, everywhere deserves to have healthy, great food.
We believe that millions of people are either not getting enough food or getting too much of the wrong food. So we are on a mission to better feed the world.
Potatoes are one of the world’s most efficient crops. Not only are they good for you, they are good for the environment.
By going back to the potato’s roots we have uncovered the same types of potato varieties first cultivated – small, highly nourishing, diverse and packed with flavor.
Our goal is to cultivate potatoes that are again full of flavor and bursting with nutrition.
This amazing vegetable is a gift and we see it as our job to bring the potato back to its original glory.
Together, we planted the first acre in 1996, sorting, washing, and bagging our first crop by hand. Our actions speak through our hands – by doing what we say – in the field and throughout the world.
At the Little Potato Company, we believe in living by a set of deeply held core values representing both our history and how we strive to live every day to make the world a better place.
Importance of Family - We are a family based Company and since our prime support comes from our family, we encourage a healthy work-life balance. We honor the place that family has in our employees’ lives.
Go Beyond - We acknowledge that employees come to us with their own experience and resources. We support and encourage our employees to go beyond what they bring, beyond what they envision they can do, and certainly beyond a mere job description. We trust in our employees’ passion and creativity so that they can extend themselves not just for the company, but for themselves.
Elevate others - We are a diverse and inclusive work environment that embraces new ideas and ways of doing. When we enhance another by recognizing their skills and expertise we contribute to an overall feeling of worth.
Down To Earth - We are approachable and recognize the common humanity of all. We do not pretend to be other than what we are. Whether we are in the office, in the plant, in the field or with a customer we are approachable , genuine and warm.
Do What You Say - We walk our talk. Being honest and impeccable really means that we waste no time in pretending, glossing over, or making unfounded promises. We are reliable, accountable and our words communicate an actual reality.

“I saw your Microwave Ready Little Potatoes in the grocery store for the first time today. I chose the garlic parsley. They are marvellous. They taste wonderful and are easy to prepare. Less time than boiling and no pot to wash. I will never buy regular potatoes again.” (Marsha from Colorado)
