Inventure Foods, Inc. has launched a new product joining the well-known TGI Friday'sTM licensed snack line - Sweet Potato Skins.

TGI Friday'sTM snacks, thanks to the variety of flavors and the popularity of this restaurant chain, have caught on in a big way in the U.S. The first TGI Friday'sTM restaurant was opened in 1965 in New York City, and today more than nine hundred locations in sixty countries bring people together in a fun, laid-back atmosphere with a wide selection of American food and drink.

With the soaring popularity of the sweet potato across the U.S., it is no wonder that in 2014, the U.S. was the leading destination of sweet potato imports, making up 45% of global imports.
When it comes to the global sweet potato trade, China remains the leader in sweet potato exports, with 9 thousand tonnes of sweet potato exported in 2014, totaling 46 million USD, which was 28% over the previous year. Its primary trading partner was Japan, where it supplied 8% of its total sweet potato exports in value terms, accounting for 79% of Japan's total imports.
Japan and the U.S. were among the other main global suppliers of sweet potato in 2014. However, the fastest growing exporters from 2012 to 2014 were the U.S. (+40%) and China (+85%). China, by virtue of this meteoric growth, significantly strengthened its position in the global export structure.
China's top 5 trading partners in 2014 were Japan, Singapore, the U.S., Malaysia and Canada, with a combined 21% share of China's sweet potato exports. The share of Singapore increased modestly (+4 percentage points), while the share of Malaysia illustrated negative dynamics (-8 percentage points).
