EAGLE — A team of fresh Idaho potato shippers will soon head to Taiwan to develop new business relationships in the Southeast Asian market. 

The foreign trade mission, sponsored by the Idaho Potato Commission, will leave for Taiwan early during the week beginning June 16 and will spend about a week overseas. 

IPC President and CEO Frank Muir said representatives from six different Idaho fresh potato sheds will participate in the trip. 

"This was pretty unique. Typically, we don't have this many (participating sheds)," Muir said. 

Muir said the team will be headed by IPC's international director, Ross Johnson. The team will meet with potential customers, current customers and government officials in Taiwan.    [FULL  STORY]
