Graduating with a degree in agronomy from the Mayor University of Chile, Rodrigo worked in QC at multiple fruit companies throughout his studies, including Oppy grower partner David Del Curto. He was hired at Oppy seven years ago as QC inspector at our Carson office and just two years ago moved to McAllen, Texas to work remotely as QC control supervisor at the Hidalgo Texas Port of Entry.
Winning the Industry Role Model award for a seventh year, Oppy was represented by Retail Solutions Specialist Garland Perkins at the Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH) Consumer Connection Conference last month. She accepted the honor and for the first time, received recognition herself as an Excellence Awardee! PBH chose companies and individuals whose support of the Fruits & Veggies—More Matters brand to increase consumption in 2018 warranted special recognition.
