Our shared vision is to maintain orderly marketing conditions for United States spearmint oil which will result in our continued supremacy in the world market. We will do this by:

Supporting continued production of the world's highest quality oil.

Supporting policies which seek to balance supply to the industry
and reasonable prices to the growers.

Being proactive in domestic and foreign promotion of spearmint oil.

Being the leader in supplying the industry with accurate, pertinent
and timely statistics on mint oils.
In all of the above, constantly seeking to establish and enhance partnerships with handlers, users, and spearmint and peppermint producers in all areas of the U.S.
