MANUFACTURERS LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY Diamond S Produce Lid. of Taber has been given a federal incentives grant of to- ward construction of a potato conditioning plant which will condition potatoes for chipping for Old Dutch Foods Lid. Using a new concept in con- ditioning, the plant will employ special air-flow and tempera- ture control fij'upment in the square foot building. There will be 12 insulated in- dividual bins in the building which will be separately con- trolled from one station. Total capacity of the plant nl any given time is tons, with a 500 Ion capacity for each bin. As potatoes are brought in from the field, they are put into the bins and the condition- ing process is started with the use of the air-flow and tem- perature control equipment. This is operated for three or four weeks to lower the sugar content of the potatoes. Once conditioned, the pota- toes are stored in the bins until the Old Dutch company needs them for making polalo chips. The process is necessary in the making of potato chips be- cause Ihe high sugar content of potatoes results in dark, unap- pealing chips. When a request for potatoes comes from Old Dutch, the po- tatoes are readied for final shipment, washed and shipped to the chipping plant. Once al the planl, it takes 17 minutes from the time the conditioned potatoes start into the chipping process until they are in a bag. Pat Sliimbashi, one of the owners of the new plant with five other fanners in south Al- berta, said a special variety of polalo is used. The new facility is definitely not just a storage place, said Mr. Shimbashi. "With the new equipment, the cost of Ihe plant will reach per square foot compared with lo per square foot for an ordinary storage building."
