Idaho shippers play wait-and-see on Mexico

Idaho potato shippers won’t hold their breath waiting for most of Mexico to reopen to U.S. exports. Chris Wada, director of marketing and exports for Wada Farms Marketing Group LLC and a committee member of the Denver-based U.S. Potato Board, said he doesn’t see a resolution to the Mexico issue happening “right away.” “It was a big win to get it opened up. Now it’s in a stalling pattern,” Wada said. “There are pending legal issues that will create precedents for the future.” Rexburg, Idaho-based Wilcox Fresh was one of the first, if not the very first, Idaho houses to ship potatoes to Mexico, said Rob Rydalch, supply coordinator.
