When it comes to looking behind the scenes of the potato industry, one major company truly stands out—Idaho Package Company. Set right in the heart of the best potato growing country on earth, Idaho Package stands vetted and ready to supply pallets of industrial, institutional and retail packaging to a top-quality list of growers and/or packers. Serving for over 30 years as a one-stop-shop packaging supplier for a wide variety of potato and other agricultural applications, Idaho Package has ten to twelve semi-trucks loaded with a variety of packaging leaving its facilities each day en route to packing sheds and processors. From 50-lb. baler bags and their accompanying 5-lb and 10-lb pound retail-ready packaging, 50-lb bulk balers to be filled for delivery to the back of a major supermarket, and corrugated boxes for table potatoes headed to food service and fine restaurants, Idaho Package covers the gamut of packaging needs.
The packaging that Idaho Package Company delivers serves a critical and timely role in getting the fresh produce of the region to the plate. As a major fan of all things potatoes, I have to tip my hat and say thank you!
