OUR PRIME POTATO-GROWING COUNTRY IN ALLISTON, ONTARIO
As the exclusive potato producing operation within a 25 km radius (15 mile), Ontario Potato Distribution Inc. is perfectly positioned in the Township of New Tecumseth, near Alliston, Ontario, to access major processing and distribution markets throughout the province. The absence of neighboring potato growing operations in the area gives our farms a geographic advantage in the fight against migratory disease contamination.
90 minutes to the south or 110 kilometers (70 miles) of Ontario Potato Distribution Inc. is the Greater Toronto area, Canada’s largest population center to over 6.1 million people. Alliston, another of Ontario’s major potato production and processing areas sits 5 kilometers (3 miles) northwest of the operation, with Barrie the fastest growing city in Canada (pop’n 100,000+) resting on the doorstep only 20 kilometers (12 miles) to the north.
With the United States border (New York State), a mere 2-1/2 hours away, Ontario Potato Distribution’s prime location has been paramount to its continued success for decades.
Transportation links to these processing, distribution, manufacturing and labour markets are minutes away from the farm’s facilities. Easy access is possible via the major Provincial 400 series highways (6 lane) and three (3) secondary 2-lane highway connector routes (#27, #11 and #93).
Ontario Potato Distribution Inc. land parcels integrate via (2) township maintained concession roads (paved) and numerous side roads (gravel).
