Idaho® Potato Lovers Contest 2024 Winners!

One of the Idaho® Potato Commission’s goals is to promote and protect the “Grown in Idaho®” seal, a federally registered trademark. This assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho’s ideal growing conditions with its rich, volcanic soil, climate, and irrigation are what make Idaho® potatoes standout from other regions. As a proud Idaho-based company, we at Potandon Produce appreciate the IPC’s efforts.

From February 1st to April 15th of 2024, grocery stores across the country were invited to participate in the Idaho Potato Commission’s “Idaho® Potato Lovers Contest.” This involves produce teams building a memorable display with Idaho® potatoes. Each participating store is entered in the contest for a chance to win one of over $150,000 worth of cash and prizes, including a Grand Prize of a Traeger Meat Smoker and complete smoking kit!

Every year, we at Potandon Produce will match any prize winnings for our retail grocery store winners that also have Green Giant™ Fresh potatoes in their display. For 2024, we are excited to match 51 winners!

Included in this year’s winners are a 1st place (Schmitz’s Economart in Wisconsin), 2nd place (Schnucks Markets in Missouri), 3rd place (Strack & Van Til in Indiana), two 4th places (Babbs Supermarket in Indiana, Tops Markets in New York), as well as many honorable mentions!

You can check out the full list of winners and displays here.

Be sure to look for Green Giant™ Fresh potatoes at your local grocery store, including our One Step Done and Minute Mashers products! From the traditional russets to our innovative value-added products, we provide the full potato category every option at the highest quality.
