J.R. Simplot had the inherent ability to see possibilities nobody else could see, and the resolve to act on them—helping him turn a one-man farming operation into a global food and agribusiness enterprise.

The Simplot brand began to take shape in the farm fields of southern Idaho in the late 1920s. Young J.R. struck out on his own at age 14, set on entering the agriculture business. While he had just an eighth-grade education, he was armed with keen entrepreneurial instincts, constant curiosity, boundless energy and an irrepressible drive.

J.R. grew and diversified his business as he matured, but the essence of the Company remained the same, drawing purpose and strength from the unique character, history and motivation of its founder.

Today, fuelled by J.R.’s irrepressible belief in the promise of the possible, Simplot’s diverse portfolio spans from soil to dinner table and everything in-between.

Operations in Texas

The location I worked at had a revolving door of managers. Never promoting anyone from the location to the position. The higher ups never came to the location to check on things and only took advice from one person. Never questioned anything. The company is very secretive and doesn’t tell employees anything.

Packaging Operator in Portage la prairie

Good place to work. 5 breaks in 12 hours. Fast paced. Lots of problem solving. Lots of equipment adjustments while keeping up putting boxes on machine to fill them. People that have there time in are lazy and don’t help. If you’re new you’re expected to do all the labour while learning to keep everything running.
