We’re much more than spuds.
For more than 100 years, Idaho has made a name for itself as an agricultural state with abundant natural resources.
Farming legends like J.R. Simplot have transformed Idaho from a simple agricultural producer into an agribusiness powerhouse where food production businesses thrive. With a low-cost, pro-business climate, the lowest power costs in the country, and industrial rates that are 40% less than the national average, operating in Idaho makes sense for any company looking to produce world-class food products.
Every year, our farmers and producers account for an extremely diverse set of crops, seeds, dairy products, livestock, wine and beer that make Idaho 7th in the U.S. for agricultural goods and food product exports per capita.
