Eye on Potatoes
NPC 2021 President and Maine potato grower Dominic Lajoie and NPC CEO Kam Quarles sat down with us to preview next week's Summer Meeting Virtual and update the industry on a number of policy development that have occurred since the Annual Meeting in February, including:
- NPC’s efforts over the pandemic to secure $350 million for growers to offset foodservice disruptions;
- Ongoing negotiations between the U.S. and Mexico to reinstate access to U.S. fresh potatoes; and,
- The latest efforts on Capitol Hill to address comprehensive immigration reform, including ag labor reform.
