Robinson Fresh, a division of C.H. Robinson has announced that it will now be the exclusive partner of Albert Bartlett and will be providing its potatoes in North America.
Albert Bartlett is a fresh and frozen potato supplier in the United Kingdom, and is increasing its presence in North America with headquarters in Denver and growers throughout the continent.
“When we heard Albert Bartlett was looking for opportunities to further expand into the North American market, we knew we wanted to get involved,” said Michael Castagnetto, vice president of global sourcing at Robinson Fresh.
In this new business relationship, Robinson Fresh will be providing customer-based solutions across the entire supply chain, while Albert Bartlett will focus on grower relationships and product innovation.
“We wanted to work with someone who understands and can simplify the complexities associated with the North American produce market while appreciating the care we put into each potato,” said Steve Barker, vice president at Albert Bartlett.
“When the Bartlett family started this company, it was done with a passion to share with the world what a high-quality potato could and should taste like. In working with Robinson Fresh, we’re helping to share a UK favorite with the rest of the world. We look forward to continuing to expand our Albert Bartlett offerings.”
