Orchard View Cherries wraps up record year
The Dalles, Ore.-based Orchard View Cherries team is wrapping up a successful 2019 season.
“This was our largest volume year ever,” Brenda Thomas, president of Orchard View Cherries, said in a news release. “But the defining moment was that we had consistently phenomenal quality. Because temperatures were quite moderate, the sugars were able to develop more fully, making for very sweet cherries. This allowed us to have less stressful days so that we could enjoy the wins that much more.”
Orchard View also celebrated the 10th anniversary of its partnership with the Oppenheimer Group, according to the release.
“We’re thrilled to be toasting to our union alongside a record volume increase of 10% -- it truly was a 10 out of 10 year,” James Milne, senior vice president of categories and marketing at Oppy, said in the release.
Throughout the season, Orchard View received several positive consumer comments, according to the release.
“We can’t believe the number of times we see people remark that our cherries are the best they’ve ever eaten.,” Thomas said. “It’s what keeps us going each year.”
Orchard View Cherries will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2023, according to the release.
“We can’t wait for the day we get to say our fresh cherries have been enjoyed around the globe for over 100 years,” Thomas said.
