A Potatoes USA reverse trade mission and a series of retail promotions during October-November 2016 are reinvigorating U.S. fresh table-stock potato exports to Vietnam. U.S. potato exporters have so far shipped 162 metric tons, valued at $139,546, during the first six months of the current July 2016-June 2017 marketing year. Although the Vietnam market opened to U.S. fresh potatoes in July 2010, exports have been sporadic, due primarily to the market’s strong price orientation and lack of familiarity with U.S. table-stock potatoes. No exports occurred last year, and exports during the prior fiscal year totaled $138,588 for the entire year.
