Our Company

Dedicated to our operators.

Foodservice is a famously tough business. What keeps you coming back? A passion for delivering a great dining experience and seeing your customers leave with a smile. At Simplot Foods, we share that passion. We are a family-owned and -run manufacturer of an evolving portfolio of on-trend foodservice products, including frozen and chilled potatoes, avocado, vegetables, grains and fruit, thoughtfully grown and carefully prepared. Since inventing the first commercially viable frozen fry in 1953, we’ve continued to listen closely to our operators, finding new ways to improve their menus, reduce their labor and build their businesses.
