US: Northwest officials and potato growers return from Southeast Asia trade mission

The 21 delegates from the Washington and Oregon agriculture departments and potato commissions returned from the mission last week with to-do lists of follow-up needed with importers and officials from the Philippines, Vietnam and Myanmar, all relatively new markets for fresh Northwest potatoes. “The level of enthusiasm from the different markets was really positive,” said Joe Bippert, Washington state Department of Agriculture’s international marketing program manager.
