Curry & Company, headquartered in Brooks, OR, began its 2015 Pacific Northwest sweet onion harvest in August announced a new label this year.
“Curry & Company Sweet Onions” label complements the existing line of products that includes blueberries and blackberries.
The onion program features sweets grown in western Oregon, predominantly in the Willamette Valley region of the state. The onions are packed at the Brooks warehouse and are available from August-April.
In 2014, Curry & Company launched the Lake Labish Sweet Onion, named after the lake that was drained over 100 years ago to create this farming region. It was a successful season, and they decided to expand upon this success, capitalizing on the Curry & Company brand with their account base.
Curry & Company President, Matt Curry states, “Onions have come full circle for us in Brooks, OR. In the 1940s, this was the predominant onion growing region in the state, but over the years, onion production greatly declined in this area, in part because of the moister climate. However, by working closely with the seed company, we have identified sweet onion varieties that thrive in western Oregon. We have done several taste tests, and our Curry & Company Sweet Onions have always come out on top, we are excited for consumers to experience these delicious onions nationwide, and are excited to once again be growing onions ‘in our own backyard.’”
Curry & Company Sweet Onions are available in a full range of sizes and consumer packages including bags, bulk and bins. Visit on line at www.curryandco.com
