We Specialize In The Export of Chipping Potatoes

In 2007, Jason Davenport founded Allied Potato, establishing a successful company specializing in the export of chipping potatoes from California and Washington. In February of 2009, the business expanded to include Brian Kirschenmann, a grower and packer from Bakersfield, California. With a similar vision for the future and strong partnership built on respect and hard work—the pair quickly expanded the business to become recognized leaders in the potato industry.

 

Since 2009, Jason and Brian developed a solid niche in export operations, expanding their farming endeavors to various parts of California, Oregon, and Washington, opening operations in Lancaster, West Moreland, and Arvin, California. 

 

As operations expanded to the Northwest, Derek Davenport joined the team as General Manager of Operations and an eventual valued Partner, heading a thriving farm and packing operation in the heart of Washington’s potato growing country. Similar to our California operation, our Northwest facility sports high-tech equipment and proprietary processes that ensure the quality, freshness and continuity of our potatoes with every shipment.  

 

“Where the company started and where it is today is much more diverse than I would have ever expected. With hard work, perseverance, discipline, and an excellent team of employees, coupled with the experience and passion both Brian and I bring to the table—we’ve been able to expand our business into a thriving corporation.”
