The Market Development Division of ISDA is a public resource providing marketing assistance to Idaho's food and agriculture industry. The Division’s mission is “to promote Idaho’s food and agriculture industry by expanding opportunities in domestic and foreign markets fostering industry growth and profitability.”
If Idahoans had to consume all products produced within the state, every resident would need to consume 219 slices of bread, 49 potatoes, 2 pounds of cheese or 42 glasses of milk, 1.5 lbs of beef, 3 onions, and 3 cups of beans every day (2013 data).

This was the first ever Governorís trade mission to Peru. In 2014, Idahoís exports to Peru totaled $17.05 million, up 16.4 percent from 2013. The trade mission established new customer relationships in the market that will help accelerate export growth into that country. Mexico, a more established market, is already Idahoís 6th largest market overall. Total exports were valued at more than $301 million in 2014, up over 10% from the previous year. The Mexico market continues to grow, however, and provide new sales opportunities for Idaho businesses.
Initial reports from companies that participated are good. Many companies made new connections, as well as strenghtening already established relationships.

With 96% of the world’s population and 80% of the world’s wealth being outside of the United States, the international market opportunities for agricultural products are great. The Division works to connect Idaho producers with foreign buyers through its international trade offices, trade shows, buying missions, menu promotions, in-store retail promotions, and trade missions. These activities allow Idaho producers access to key government and industry contacts and help expand and grow international sales.
