Made in the USA Defined
According to Consumer Reports, 80% of American shoppers say they prefer to buy goods made in the United States. But, what does the “Made in the USA” designation really mean? The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires that a product advertised as “Made in the USA” be “all or virtually all” made in the U.S. This means that for a product to be “Made in the USA,” all significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of U.S. origin – and the manufacturer is required to have competent and reliable evidence to back up the claim that the product is, in fact, “Made in the USA.”
At Boise Paper, our products have been manufactured in the U.S. for decades with mills in International Falls, Minnesota, and Jackson, Alabama, that employ more than 1,000 men and women in healthy and safe work environments. By choosing to manufacture in the U.S., our “Made in the USA” promise keeps jobs and dollars in local economies and delivers on a commitment to community, quality, and service.
- Community – Boise Paper provides community and economic support throughout the country and regularly invests in the communities our employees and customers call home.
- Quality – High manufacturing standards and regulated processes ensures consistent and reliable results.
- Service – Boise Paper’s domestic manufacturing and distribution gives customers the benefit of faster delivery and responsive customer service.
Buying products made in the U.S. keeps our economy growing and shows you insist on a higher standard!
