Today, Basic American Foods (BAF) is the leading supplier of convenient dry potatoes and beans to the North America food service market, and the company remains in family hands under the leadership of Jack’s sons. Its product brands Potato Pearls®, Golden Grill®, Savory SeriesTM, and Santiago® are a much-loved staple for many American and Canadian consumers.
