Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Northwest Horticultural Council was organized in 1947 by horticulturalists in Oregon and Washington in order to coordinate the efforts of the Perishable Traffic Bureau and the Oregon-Washington Horticultural Export Council as well as local organizations in Medford and Hood River, Oregon, and Yakima and Wenatchee, Washington. The initial purpose was to present a unified position in the face of federal government decisions and regulations effecting the Northwest fruit industry. Other stated objectives of the Council included the promoting of domestic and foreign trade, dealing with the pesticide issue, resolving problems common to the fruit producers and shippers, and generally advancing the interests of Northwest horticulturalists. From its headquarters in Yakima, the Council currently represents approximately 7500 growers and 200 shippers.
