Bathtub To Boardroom: The Little Potato Company

2:30 pm Tuesday, January 17

FCC Theatre

Angela Santiago and her father built the Little Potato Company from, quite literally a bathtub full of freshly washed Creamer potatoes delivered to local farmers markets by car to now having stores across Canada and in all 50 states.  Sprouting from an idea to introduce Creamers to North America from the Netherlands, the first crop was hand grown, harvested, washed and delivered to local farmer markets in Edmonton, AB and now includes a large network of carefully selected growers.  Home cooks and chefs alike have embraced these delicious new small potatoes and the company expanded.  Early next year the company will open its first US processing plant to help meet growing demand across North America. Angela Santiago will share the company story and the lessons she and her team have learned in creating and championing an entirely new produce category for Creamers.
