Houston, TX – While crawfish season is expected to ramp up a bit later this year due to supply challenges caused by months of high temperatures, fresh potato grower and packager MountainKing is readying supplies of its popular petite varieties while putting the finishing touches on how-to videos to help shoppers get the most out of their springtime celebrations. 

MountainKing once again is offering retail partners three-pound bags of its Crawfish B-Red potatoes, three-pound Crawfish Medley Pack and three-pound Crawfish Gold Pack, each perfect for backyard gatherings and large, multi-day festivals. 

“Our production levels look very strong, and we’re looking forward to a strong season,” remarks Andreas Trettin, MountainKing’s director of marketing. 

MountainKing’s pre-sized petite potatoes, with their waxy texture and high moisture content, are known for maintaining their shape even after boiling, making them ideal for crawfish celebrations, Trettin adds. 

All three crawfish packs are packaged in handy mesh bags which can be dropped straight into a pot without removing the product from the bag. The boil-n-bag feature also keeps the petite-sized potatoes separated from other ingredients. 

Retail grocer point-of-sale support for MountainKing’s Red, Gold and Medley Crawfish Packs includes high-graphic half-size bins, custom display signage and optional display sleeves for secondary displays. Collaborative social media support also is available. 

Fifty-pound foodservice sacks and graphic table tent cards are available for food service operations. 

MountainKing Potatoes is one of the world’s largest growers of high-flavor potato varieties.  Currently, about one million U.S. households enjoy MountainKing products every week.
