Both Oppy and Orchard View are rejoicing in more ways than one as another fast-paced, top-quality season got underway—which includes raising a glass to their decade-long union.
“We are very proud to be celebrating our 10th year as the exclusive marketer of Orchard View cherries,” said James Milne, vice president of marketing, categories and business development at Oppy. “We’ve established a strong partnership and it’s been a great fit because their season is only an eight-week window, they can capitalize on Oppy’s 52-week presence of meeting the top retailers in North America.”
Born in Thailand, Mai moved to the United States when she was six years old and currently lives in Visalia, CA. She majored in criminology at California State University but ultimately decided the field was not for her and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. “You can say what I currently do at Oppy is somewhat like forensic accounting,” she joked.
Participating in the West Coast Cycle for Sight for the sixth time, team Oppy picked up four new riders this year. Our original cyclist, Doug Grant, who holds deep passion for the cause as his wife Sherry has macular degeneration affecting her central vision, couldn’t make it this year because he was out of town.
Recently appointed by Sun World Innovations to import and market its line of proprietary grape varieties, Oppy is set to offer fruit grown in any Southern Hemisphere country in alignment with market demand.
