What began in 1999 as a small cannery-style operation in a backyard warehouse has quickly turned into Wilamette Valley Pie Company being one of the Northwest’s leading processors of high-quality pies and berry products.
Each summer WVPC processes, on average, 12 million pounds of fruit. They do strawberries, raspberries, boysenberries, blueberries, a large variety of blackberries, cranberries and the local favorite, Marionberries. Though the majority of their fruit is flash-frozen (IQF), they also make purees, straight-pack products and drum stock. These products are generally sold on the commodity market to domestic and foreign users who will combine berries with other ingredients to manufacture food products of their own.
