BOISE — Officials from Idaho and Taiwan signed a $576 million, two-year deal Tuesday for Taiwan flour mills to purchase 1.8 million metric tons of Idaho wheat.

“That’s one ton for every man, woman and child in Idaho,” said a smiling Gov. Brad Little before the ceremonial signing of the agreement in the Capitol rotunda. He added, “It is not just ceremonial. Taiwan follows through on their purchases year after year.”
