3 Tips to Increase Your Sweet Potato Sales

Attract shoppers, boost sales, and bring ‘Purple Power to the People’

LOS ALAMITOS, CA (November 2015) — Follow these three tips from Frieda’s Specialty Produce for a successful sweet potato program.

Follow the Foodies

Foodies often make new culinary discoveries around the holidays when they’re looking to put a fresh twist on classic recipes. Stokes Purple® Sweet Potatoes make any home cook look good at dinner parties and potluck feasts, with everything from roasted sweet potatoes to purple sweet potato pies. Then, the foodies will be back for more after the holidays.

Attract Athletes

Runners and fitness enthusiasts seek out Stokes Purple® Sweet Potatoes as they are the perfect #powerfuel. The anthocyanin antioxidants in the purple-pigmented Stokes Purple® add extra appeal to sweet potatoes, which are already considered a “super starch,” a nutrient-rich source of energy packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

Put Purple in the Mix

The purple-tinted skin of Stokes Purple® Sweet Potatoes stands out against a sea of orange and brown on your potato display, not just during the holidays, but all through the spring. These tubers also add color and interest to your shoppers’ meals—from breakfast to dinner, any time of year.

Bring “Purple Power to the People”! Stokes Purple® Sweet Potatoes are available in conventional and organic, exclusively from Frieda’s. Interested retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice distributors can contact Frieda’s for product information and high resolution images to assist with any marketing needs.
