I pulled out 68A _-Ida, maker of Tater Tots: ORE because I had been under the impression that they were only in Idaho and that potatoes were what they considered to be their ore. Turns out that’s not it at all.
Since our humble beginnings over 60 years ago. Ore-Ida has brought you the very best potato dishes in America-from crispy, golden fries to the world famous Tater Tot Potatoes, a 100% Ore-Ida invention. That’s because the best food always starts with best ingredients. And we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by the finest potato farms in the Pacific Northwest: the heart of potato growing country.
In fact, the name Ore-Ida comes from combining “Oregon” and “Idaho.” That’s how proud we are of this land we call home and the passionate people are called “neighbor”.
