Potatoes. Real Food. Real Performance®

Being your personal best isn’t just about how you train: it’s about what you eat. Potatoes provide the complex carbohydrate, potassium, and energy that athletes and consumers alike need to perform at their best.

The consumer campaign asks the question What Are You Eating?® and features real athletes who fuel with potatoes to perform at their personal best. Through social media and trusted influencers, the performance message is reaching a broad audience. Everyone from high schoolers to hard core athletes are seeing how they can benefit from the power of potatoes.
