When your goal is to consistently provide the world’s best-tasting, most nutritious sweet potatoes to customers in the US, Canada, UK and Europe, going the extra mile is just part of the job. When you grow, pack and ship more than 3 million bushels annually, it means going a lot of extra miles.
To meet this goal at Southern Produce Distributors, we grow and select only the highest-quality sweet potatoes from leading GLOBALG.A.P. certified farms in North Carolina, Mississippi and Louisiana. Hand picked to protect the product, these top quality sweet potatoes are heat cured and held in computer-monitored, controlled environment storage to ensure optimal quality, nutrition and taste. We then inspect, sort, pack and ship those sweet potatoes on demand, year round, to meet the exacting needs of our customers.
It’s not the easiest way to sell sweet potatoes, but it’s the best. We’ve been doing business this way since Harold S. Precythe began Southern Produce Distributors in 1942, and our third generation of family ownership isn’t planning to change it now.
