H & S Fresh Pak


A new Red River Valley potato packing company, H&S Fresh Pack, has been created in a partnership between grower-packer-shippers J.G. Hall & Sons, and O.C. Schulz & Sons Inc.

David Moquist of O.C. Schultz, based in Crystal, ND, said the two companies, which are equal partners, plan to primarily pack their own potatoes as H&S Fresh Pack. But some other shippers, such as NoKota Packers will also handle some of the volume.

“This year we planted a few extra acres,” said Schultz, to expand into H&S opportunities, Schultz said.

Initially the Halls were approached to buy the H&S facility. They then invited Moquist to become a partner.

“I’d say the younger generation was more interested in this than the older generation, so we went ahead with the deal,” Moquist said.

Located in Hoople, ND, the H&S facility “has quite a history,” having had multiple owners and operating names, Moquist said. The plant was first built to run russet potatoes. But the wash plant is updated and well-prepared for red and yellow potatoes, he added.
