Earlier this year our CEO, Scott Webster, was interviewed by Pete Springer. Pete is a reporter for Oregon Public Broadcasting. I thought it was a great glimpse into the history and structure of The Fruit Company. In it Scott discusses the history of his Grandfather founding the company and the changes that have occurred to make it what it is today, Great Gifts! It’s a great article and we just wanted to share it with all of you!

In 1942, Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. This orchard and fruit growing wisdom was passed down from father to son. In 1999, The Fruit Company was founded by Roy's grandsons, Scott & Addison Webster. Today, Scott runs the business as President and CEO. The Fruit Company packs and ships beautiful fruit gifts around the nation.
