Welcome to Edmonton Potato Growers Cooperative
” The Origin of EPG “
In January of 1960 a small group of local potato and vegetable farmers in the Edmonton, Alberta area decided to try an innovative alternative to conventional produce marketing.
If they could work together to avoid competing with one another, they could improve their efficiency AND be more profitable.
In 1968, after nearly a decade of working and marketing their produce together, the group centralized sales and distribution, building a warehouse in west Edmonton near what would be the Yellowhead Trail ( HWY 16 ) and 170 Street. ( A dirt road at this time. Not gravel – dirt! )
