Strategic Gateway Between America and Asia

The Columbia Basin is the Strategic Gateway for American food and beverage processing companies that want to serve the booming Asian markets, and Asian food and beverage processing companies that want to serve one of the largest and most affluent countries in the world: the United States. The Columbia Basin, with its growing wine and specialty food industry, is also the ideal location for industry support organizations in packaging, education, research and development, hospitality (restaurants, hotels, spas), food tourism, storage, and logistics looking for American/Asian collaboration opportunities.
