The Idaho Potato Commission is a state agency with many responsibilities, including the promotion of Idaho Potatoes. The Commission is funded by a tax levied on all Idaho-grown potatoes. It is currently set at 12.5 cents for every 100 pounds of potatoes. The funds generated from this tax are used to advertise, promote and do research to expand the markets for Idaho grown Potatoes.
The commission is directed by nine commissioners, five of whom are potato growers, two are packer/shippers, and two represent processors. For a list of Idaho packers and processors, their brands, products, or packs, request a copy of our Fresh Shippers & Processors Directory. The Commission celebrates 71 years of service in 2008.
