CHICAGO-Scottish potato producer, Albert Bartlett, announced plans on Sunday to target growth in the U.S. market, after partnering with supermarket giant Wal-Mart to supply its Rooster brand of potatoes.

The deal by Airdrie-based Albert Bartlett-which employs 700 full time staff in
Scotland with further outreach to growers and distributors around the UK-is the company's first in the US market and will see the Albert Bartlett Rooster range being stocked in selected stores across Colorado and Georgia from October before being rolled out to stores in multiple states in 2013.

The company announced details of the launch while taking part in a Scottish Development International trade mission to
Chicago, led by the First Minister Alex Salmond and Scottish Enterprise Chief Executive Lena Wilson.
