By tapping new customers, new sectors and new products this year, Potatoes USA has created a solid foundation for U.S. potato exports to the emerging market of Myanmar. As a direct result of the marketing program, U.S. exports of fresh, frozen and dehydrated potatoes are rising dramatically. During the first three quarters of the current July 2016-June 2017 marketing year, the value of potato exports more than tripled, reaching $199,122 during July 2016-March 2017, compared with the same period the prior year. Export volume grew to 147 metric tons, up 107% over the first three quarters of the prior year.
