To maintain our competitive position in the market place and to ensure the Company meets its strategic goals, The South Australian Potato Company is continuously trailing and growing our range of potatoes. The main objective in any breeding program is to identify potatoes that have:

  • A high yield
  • A long shelf life
  • Are visually appealing to the consumer
  • A great taste

We regularly conduct independent expert testing to evaluate the ‘taste’ of a potato and the product uses less water. We are currently trialling a number of new varieties, which after extensive evaluation and consumer testing, will be short listed and produced on a much larger commercial scale.
