Our company was founded in 2007 within the walls of an old textile factory in Huntington, Quebec. We had the vision to produce the world’s best sweet potato fries. Major investments and improvements were made to allow the implementation and development of a cutting-edge automated processing plant for the transformation of the finest sweet potatoes harvested in North Carolina into sweet potato fries of exceptional quality.
Our state-of-the-art facilities and qualified personnel are the winning formula to efficiently cater to your needs when it comes to healthy clean label sweet potato products for foodservice, retail, club stores and co-packing.
Our vision is to produce the highest quality products for your private brand. Specializing in private brand requires flexibility and product innovation to meet your customer’s needs.
With this unique and highly flexible approach, Russet House filled a need for private brand and secured a choice position amongst the largest players of the potato industry. We are proud to now be the third-largest processor of sweet potatoes in North America, while still listening to our clients’ specific needs.
Steam bleaching technology
As an innovative industry, Maison Russet understands the importance of preserving all of the natural and beneficial health attributes that sweet potatoes possess. The sweet potato is naturally healthy with its vitamin and mineral content that contributes to a healthy immune system. At Maison Russet, our sweet potatoes are blanched by steam. This process helps preserve the natural orange color, natural sugars, nutritional properties and avoids the unnecessary addition of dyes and sugar.
The water blanching commonly used in the industry causes a significant loss of the natural color, vitamins and minerals and sweetness of the sweet potato, which among other things, requires the addition of sugar to the list of ingredients.
Because steam blanching preserves all these beautiful properties, our finished product has a unique flavor, texture and color.
Consumers are health conscious and consult labels and other tools available online to make informed food choices. Maison Russet produces branded products with these positive attributes.
