From Seattle to Issaquah, Wenatchee to Brewster and ending in Pateros, the Oppy team of BDRs, category leaders and marketing staff took an educational (and scenic!) tour through Washington state in mid-September. Meeting with colleagues from Ocean Spray, Zespri, Crane & Crane and BC Tree Fruits, the week was full of constant learning.

BDR Manager and Sales Manager Audrey Desnoyers, who organized the trip, was beaming with pride from the strong teamwork and high level of creativity within her team—that was especially prevalent over those few days.
