HealthPro Brands, Inc. announced an agreement for Agri-Stor Company to sell and distribute Industrial Fit Produce Wash to the potato grower/shippers and processors throughout the United States.


Nathan Oberg, spokesman for Agri-Stor said, "Fit is an excellent addition to our portfolio of products. In our business of supplying materials to be used in washing, storing and processing potatoes, we are always looking for ways to enhance our product offering for our customers."

Their expertise as a post-harvest chemical supplier will enable us to expand Fit beyond our current customer base within the potato industry.

"As we continue to look for more efficient ways to reach our growing customer base, we recognized Agri-Stor as being the perfect partner to help us launch Industrial Fit to the US Potato industry," said Jeff Busch, executive vice president of Caruso.
