Advertising & Promotion Committee
The Advertising & Promotion Committee's mission is to promote quality potatoes from the region. This is accomplished by a variety of means such as print and broadcast advertising, special promotions, marketing kit materials, and exhibiting at major trade shows. As our region's potato industry includes all major potato markets; chip, fresh, seed and process, promotional efforts focus in each of these areas.
