"UK: Greenvale develops new potato variety with "Flair"
Sold exclusively through Sainsbury’s this ‘ultimate’ masher has consistently beaten other traditional mash varieties in taste tests, maintaining its texture where others have failed. Consumers have remarked on Flair’s beautiful golden colour, fabulous fresh aroma, velvety consistency and its ability to produce delicious fluffy mash every time.
Grown in Britain by Greenvale growers, the Flair mashing potato is on sale now as part of the Taste the Difference range in 200 Sainsbury’s stores nationwide. They are currently priced at £2 for a 1.5kg bag.
