Idaho – Eastern Oregon Onion Committee
Created by Federal Marketing Order 958, the Idaho-Eastern Oregon Onion Committee is an instrumentality of the Federal government representing more than 300 growers and 36 shippers in Southwestern Idaho and Malheur County, Oregon.
- Their goal is to work with all segments of the produce industry to provide consistently sized onions and the best possible quality available.
- They work to increase consumption of Idaho-Eastern Oregon onions through the use of promotional programs, education, advertising and communications.
- They partner with their growers and shippers to create programs to entice buyers, creating a demand for mandatory-inspected Idaho-Eastern Oregon onions.
They are the only storage onion region in the United States governed by a Federal Marketing Order (#958). Their onions are inspected daily by the Federal-State Inspection Service to certify that they are in accordance with grade, size, pack and maturity requirements—another reason why their onions are some of the most popular grown anywhere in the world!
