An upcoming episode of Advancements with Ted Danson will focus on breakthroughs in potato farming technology.
This segment will explore the importance of farmers today and how their dedication to innovation and technology are leading the transformation in how food is produced, distributed, and consumed around the world.
Hearing from experts in the field, viewers will learn about Allied Potato – an internationally recognized leader in potato growing, packing, and shipping. Audiences will learn how Allied Potato utilizes the latest technology and proprietary processes to ensure the quality, freshness, and continuity of its supply.
“As a company, we are extremely proud of where we have been, what it has taken to get where we are today, and we are extremely optimistic for where we’re headed in the future. As farmers, we’re tasked with feeding the growing world and that job is only getting more challenging each year. Farmers will have to produce 50% more produce with less than a 1% increase in labor to keep up with long term demand. At Allied Potato, we not only accept this challenge, but we hope to lead on farm innovation and optimization to help pave the way for the future of agriculture,” said Jason Davenport President and CEO, Allied Potato.
Spectators will see Allied Potato’s state-of-the art packing and cold storage facilities have enabled the company to become a global distributor with thousands of tons exported 52 weeks out of the year.
“As the first grower-shipper to distribute quality potatoes year-round, Allied Potato uses applied innovation to provide superior quality and services,” said John Galvin, senior producer for the Advancements series. “We look forward to sharing this on the series.”
