Mission

The mission of the Washington State Potato Commission is to support an economically and environmentally sustainable Washington State potato industry by providing strong leadership and innovation, and building partnerships to meet the demands of global consumers. The main functions of the Commission are to enhance trade opportunities, to advance environmentally sound production and cultural practices through research, and to represent the growers' interests in areas and issues relating to public and industry education, trade barriers, irrigation, transportation and crop protection.

With an annual budget of approximately $3 million, the Washington State Potato Commission and its members work to the benefit of all Washington potato growers.

While keeping the state's approximately 250 growers apprised of significant issues, news and advice, the Commission represents their interests in its work with businesses, domestic and international markets, the media, and leaders in the state and national capitals.
