Welcome to the Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission Website
The Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission (OSCC) was formed in 1989 by a majority vote of cherry growers in the state. The purpose of the commission is to coordinate assessment revenue collected for research to improve agricultural practices and cherry production and to participate in promotional efforts to increase cherry sales domestically and internationally.
This website is being set up as a centralized contact point for OSCC activities and to help share industry information with cherry growers around the state. Please feel free to contact the OSCC office with your suggestions and comments.
Future Meeting Note: The OSCC usually meets in February, but this year we have moved that meeting up to Wednesday, January 22, 2014 starting at 10:00 a.m. in the 2nd floor classroom of the Food Innovation Center, 1207 NW Naito Pkwy, Portland, OR. Cheryl Kroupa, the Marketing Director for National Cherry Growers & Industries Foundation, will be at the meeting to review the promotion programs for maraschino cherries in 2013 and the plans for 2014. Growers are welcome to attend. More details will be posted soon.
