Gaining increased market access for US potatoes and potato products is just as important as promotional activities that increase demand. While it can be a lengthy process, the upside potential of opening completely new markets represents continued growth and profitability for the entire US potato industry.
The USPB works cooperatively with the National Potato Council (NPC) and State Potato Organizations to assist the US government in removing phytosanitary barriers. In some instances, market access barriers take the form of quotas, tariffs or excessive government regulations, both on fresh and processed products. The USPB works with the NPC and the American Potato Trade Alliance (APTA) to remove or reduce these barriers through bilateral, as well as multilateral, trade discussions.
