Vietnam Potato Chip Manufacturer Imports US Chipping Potatoes

Through ongoing trade servicing in Vietnam, Potatoes USA was able to take advantage of European and Chinese supplier issues to prompt new sales of US chipping potatoes. PepsiCo Vietnam, under the potato chip brand “Poca,” has imported about 1,400 metric tons of US chipping potatoes worth nearly $700,000, so far this year. US chip-stock potatoes have not been imported into the market for a number of years, and this is the first sizable purchase that has been made. It demonstrates how developing and maintaining relationships in a growing market can pay off as the market evolves.
