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 30 shippers in Southwestern Idaho and Malheur County, Oregon. With this responsibility, we:
- Have made it our goal is to work with all segments of the produce industry to provide consistently sized onions and the best possible quality available.
- Work to increase consumption of Idaho-Eastern Oregon onions through the use of promotional programs, education, advertising, and communications.
- Partner with our growers and shippers to create programs to entice buyers, creating a demand for mandatory-inspected Idaho-Eastern Oregon onions.
We are the only storage onion region in the United States governed by a Federal Marketing Order (#958). Our 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 our onions are some of the most popular onions grown anywhere in the world!
