The monthly themed merchandisers and coordinating point-of-purchase signs will attract shoppers and increase retail potato sales.

Autumn brings with it a return to routine, and the start of the holiday season.” said Kathleen Triou, President and CEO of Fresh Solutions Network. “That’s why our autumn promotions feature quick to cook, tasty, creative, crowd pleaser potato recipe ideas.”
Shoppers know that dinner preparation needs to fit into a shorter timeframe in September, and with that in mind, Side Delights® promotional theme is ”Dinner in 23 Minutes. Seriously!” The merchandiser and coordinating point-of-purchase sign visually display potatoes as the quick, tasty and healthy choice for busy families.
