US Fresh Chipping Potato Sales to Vietnam Send Exports Climbing

Trade servicing visits by Potatoes USA in Vietnam convinced a second company in the past twelve months to import US fresh chipping potatoes. After repeated visits by Potatoes USA staff, Sojitz Vietnam, a Japanese Trading Company, decided to import U.S. chip-stock for the first time ever. The shipment is destined for a new local snack manufacturing company for a trial production of two types of potato chips. The purchase consists of about 200 metric tons of US fresh chipping potatoes, to arrive during August-October 2019. The local snack company plans to produce and then export the potato chips manufactured in Vietnam back to the Japanese market.
