Idaho Patent of the Month – February 2022

Seasoning packets are a lifesaver for making quick but tasty meals. Potandon Produce, LLC. knows how important convenience is to their consumers. Not only do their potatoes need to be healthy, they need to be tasty, and they need to be easy to prepare. Recently, they have created a pre-seasoned disk that goes along with their potatoes.

Most premade seasoning packets contain some dry seasonings to be sprinkled over the food. Ofcourse, with dry seasonings, the majority of the seasoning falls off. In Potandon Produce’s premade seasoning packet, the spices and seasonings are stored in a little disk made of solid fat. One method of use would be simply playing the disk on top of the potato, or other food, and heating it up in a microwave or oven. As the fat heats, it melts, and drips the seasonings across the food.

Potandon Products has been innovating the food industry for decades in three distinct aspects – agronomic, seeds and sourcing, and food safety. They conduct multiple consumer and industry reports to determine how to guide industry innovation by meeting consumer needs head on.
