Oregon Fruit Products Company is a third generation, family owned and operated company. They take pride in the high quality and consistent products they provide to the marketplace, along with service and integrity not commonly found in todays businesses.
The beginnings of the business started back in the 1920s when the company founder, Max Gehlhar, offered his dried fruits to the market place. During the depression year of 1935 the Oregon brand was established and the company shifted its focus from dried fruits to canned specialty fruits.
Oregon Fruit Products is located in Salem, Oregon which is nestled in the fertile Willamette Valley of Northwestern Oregon. This area is blessed with relatively mild winters and springs during which they receive most of their 45 inches of annual rainfall. These winters and springs, followed by warm sunny summer days, give their fruit the flavor, size and natural sweetness unparalleled in the world.
Their growers are located as close as a 10 minute drive from their Salem plant. This area is one of the best geographical areas in the world for their preferred hand harvested fruits and berries. The vast area they draw from also greatly decreases the risk of major crop loss due to weather or plant disease.
They are proud of their number one position nationally in canned specialty fruits, in addition to their recognized quality aseptic and frozen products produced by their industrial department.
