About the Idaho Potato Commission
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous â€œGrown in IdahoÂ®â€ seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality IdahoÂ® potatoes. Idaho’s growing season of warm days and cool nights, ample mountain-fed irrigation and rich volcanic soil, give IdahoÂ® potatoes their unique texture, taste and dependable performance. These ideal growing conditions are what differentiate IdahoÂ® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states. For more information, visit:Â www.idahopotato.com.
