Made in the USA Defined

July 08, 2020

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.
