Road Name History
In the Netherlands in 1920 Cees Meijer Sr. establishes a potato farm in Kruiningen, Zeeland (NL), growing excellent quality potatoes from the clay soil. The Dutch family firm is doing well.
In the US it started in 1950. A grower called F. Gilbert ‘Gib’ Lamb opens a food processing company called Lamb Weston, in Weston, Oregon (US). He invents the water gun knife. This revolutionary invention is the world’s first cutting machine designed to cut fries under high water pressure. The company ventures beyond the traditional straight-cut French fry and introduces Twister® Fries, a curly shaped fry in 1983. One year later, CrissCut Fries appear, a unique specialty cut. Lamb Weston in the US has grown and is now a major player in potato processing.
