Our Publisher

Bruce Huffaker, publisher of North American Potato Market News, has an M.S. degree in economics from Brigham Young University. His graduate studies explored the market dynamics of the potato industry.

Bruce spent twelve years working as a commodity analyst, first for Clayton Brokerage of St. Louis, and then for Pillsbury. He then spent four years as a senior buyer for Burger King. He spent several years advising Burger King on French Fry purchasing strategies before he assumed the lead role in making those purchases.

In November of 1992, Bruce launched North American Potato Market News in order to provide the industry with a comprehensive source of information and analysis covering potato markets. His training and experience place him in a unique position to evaluate and explain events in the potato market in a comprehensive and clear manner.
