Angela Santiago
Chief Executive Officer at The Little Potato Company Ltd.


Angela Santiago is Chief Executive Officer for The Little Potato Company Ltd. She co-founded the company with her father, Jacob Vander Schaaf, a Dutch immigrant who longed for the tasty ‘little potatoes’ of his youth. After graduating, Angela was intrigued when her entrepreneurial father asked her to help bring his idea of little potatoes to fruition. In 1996, the two began with a one-acre plot of little potatoes—grown and washed by hand to sell at local farmers’ markets. Local chefs, consumers, and retailers loved the potatoes so much that the little company soon grew. Today, partnered with family farms across North America, The Little Potato Company potatoes are sold in more than 20,000 stores across Canada and the USA.
