The fourth most important food crop worldwide is potatoes. 60% of the processing is handled in the most industrialized countries. Similar processes are used in different climates for other root crops such as cassava and yams, but the potato is cultivated on every continent. Corporate owned potato processing relies on extremely high throughput. Crop varieties and standardized processes for mass-production have been developed. This uniformity must still cope with varying levels of sugars and starches while addressing consumer concerns about the use of healthy oils. Corporations, having a heightened duty of care to the public, cannot compromise on hygiene and Volta provides a new standard of efficiency and accountability.
