Heinz ends contracts with some Oregon and Idaho potato farmers

Potato farmers in Eastern Oregon have lost an important contract with Heinz.  That’s the company that owns the Ore-Ida brand. Many potato growers in Malheur and Baker counties have had contracts with Heinz for twenty or thirty years. But Heinz recently announced that they’re dropping contracts with farmers in eastern Oregon and southwest Idaho. That means that some potato farmers must now find a new buyer, or plant a different crop.
