Sweet potato

Sweet potato

Over the years we have worked closely with growers in the Southern regions of the United States in marketing sweet potatoes for both retail and processing.

In 2016 we introduced the idea of locally grown sweet potatoes to our growers in Quebec, providing them with shared expertise from our partners down south as well as seed and financial help.

Along with growing the mainstream orange type sweet potato that is widely recognised by the average consumer we are working on testing different exotic varieties that produce yellow, red and white flesh.

Health Benefits: 

Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, which promotes skin and eye health, Vitamin C and Beta Carotene, not to mention that they are high in fiber and naturally fat and cholesterol free.
