A reverse trade mission for fresh potato importers from Vietnam in October 2016 continues to yield results a year and half later – opening the door to increased exports and triggering new business in the northern region of Vietnam during the current year. Thanks in part to the Potatoes USA reverse trade mission and subsequent marketing activities, US fresh potato exports during the first three quarters of the current July 2017-June 2018 fiscal year are already 30% higher than all of the previous year – and stand in stark contrast to no exports shipped the year before that. During July 2017-March 2018, the US exported $181,538 in fresh table-stock potatoes.
