Nick VanBerlo rides the superfood wave with sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are not native to Canada, but for the VanBerlo family near Simcoe, Ontario, sweet potatoes have become second nature.  

Karen Davidson, editor of The Grower, goes "Behind the Scenes" of the October cover story titled 'Sweet Potatoes: the uber tuber are now shipped coast to coast' and speaks with Nick VanBerlo, director of sales and business development. Nick shares how his family has carved a niche to become Canada’s largest grower/packer/shipper of this superfood crop with 1,200 acres in two provinces.
