In the heart of Canada's Atlantic provinces lies Potatoes New Brunswick, a producer-driven organization dedicated to elevating the New Brunswick potato


New Brunswick, with its perfect climate and fertile "Holmesville" soil, is a haven for potato cultivation. Approximately 50,000 acres are devoted to high-quality potatoes, with processing, seed, and table varieties each finding their place.

Exporting for over a century to 35 countries, New Brunswick's potato industry boasts a rich heritage. The renowned Shepody variety, beloved worldwide, was born here. From field to table, New Brunswick potatoes shine in various versatile recipes.

The New Brunswick potato is not just delicious, it's a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with essential nutrients, one medium potato with skin contains:

  • 45 percent of our daily value of vitamin C
  • More potassium (620mg) than bananas, spinach, or broccoli
  • 10 percent of our daily value of vitamin B6

About 20% of the potato’s nutrition is found in the skin. Most of the vitamin C and potassium are in the potato, but that good-for-you fibre is in the skin. That’s why it’s best to enjoy every part of the spud.


There are countless easy and healthy ways to prepare potatoes to keep them nutritious. Consider mashing potatoes with low-fat chicken broth or roasting them with olive oil, garlic, and a touch of herbs. For more great ideas, visit:
