Republican Congressman Butch Otter is headed back to Cuba this month to cash in on the island’s demand for agricultural products.

The five-day trade mission beginning next Monday includes representatives of the state’s bean, dairy, grain, potato and lentil industries.

Otter and the industry representatives will meet with Foreign Minister Felipe Perez and Pedro Alvarez, president of the Cuban food important company Alimport.

A trip in February yielded contracts for ten million dollars worth of Idaho agricultural goods.

And Otter believes there is a potential for even greater sales on this trip.
