What do French fries and the phosphate industry have in common? The J.R. Simplot Company - the privately owned food and agribusiness company, headquartered in Boise, Idaho. Each year, this global conglomerate mines two million tons of phosphate ore at its Smoky Canyon open-pit mine in southeastern Idaho. Simplot’s agribusiness operations keep busy producing over three billion pounds of french fries for McDonald’s each year.
