They Completed the Challenge! And Nominated Other Commodity Boards!
September 3, 2014. Eagle, ID – Showing its support for one of the most popular fundraisers ever, the Idaho Potato Commission’s (IPC) Great Big Idaho® Potato Truck nominated the Florida Department of Citrus, Washington Apples, and Georgia Peaches to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The energetic Tater Team that travels with the Great Big Idaho® Potato Truck initiated the challenge on Facebook with a video of them drenching the Truck.
“When an Idaho® potato fan suggested the Truck take the challenge, there was no way we could resist,” stated Frank Muir, President/CEO, IPC. “I want to thank the Florida Department of Citrus, Washington Apples, and Georgia Peaches for participating and inviting other commodity boards to be a part of this great cause.”

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous “Grown in Idaho®” seal, a federally registered certification mark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's growing season of warm days and cool nights, ample mountain-fed irrigation and rich volcanic soil, give Idaho Potatoes their unique texture, taste and dependable performance. These ideal growing conditions are what differentiates Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
