Numerous new menu items and food products launched in the Philippines during the current year owe their genesis to a Potatoes USA seminar. Of the twenty-six foodservice operations and suppliers launching a new U.S. potato item so far, at least ten launches were a direct result of participation in a Potatoes USA seminar. By utilizing MAP funds to conduct a series of three types of specialized seminars aimed at different market niches, Potatoes USA has made the seminar a key tool by which it increases not only overall usage of U.S. potatoes, but also taps new sectors, new products, and new applications.
