Founded and led by a Minnesota native, R.D. Offutt Company celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2014. Just as it did when it started in 1964, R.D. Offutt Company continues to seek out innovative, better ways to produce potatoes while maintaining its commitment to the communities in which it resides and the land on which the company was built. Over the past half-century, the North Dakota –headquartered producer (with potato production in eight states) has integrated virtually every aspect of production from field to fork. It operates its own stand-alone retail system, an irrigation management division, a crop storage system, a branded equipment dealership, and potato processing position through strategic partnerships.
