Who is Buy Idaho?

    There is something about Idaho....the land and her people. People in Idaho love all things Idaho. They want to work here, go to school here, to live here. And they are proud of all they provide;

through goods and services....that is Idaho.


    Buy Idaho, Inc was formed in 1986 to promote Idaho businesses doing business with Idaho Businesses; to educate and encourage Idahoans to shop locally because that keeps Idaho dollars at home; in our communities.


    Our members range from one person enterprises to the largest businesses the state has to offer; from academic institutions to government agencies.


    Buy Idaho is a private, non-profit Corporation, fully funded through membership dues.


Buy Idaho members promote their products and services through the use of two logos. The  "Buy Idaho Products and Services" logo is used to identify those businesses that provide products and/or services.



"Product of Idaho USA" logo may be used to promote products whose value is enhanced by 50 percent or more of state grown, manufactured, processed or produced goods.
