Oregon growers produce 99 percent of U.S. hazelnuts. Their acreage has more than doubled in the past five years and continues to increase by at least 8,000 acres each year. OHMB selected FLM Harvest after a competitive search to cultivate new demand within the foodservice, manufacturing, retail and consumer markets.
“As our industry expands, it is important that we continue to broaden awareness and understanding of Oregon hazelnuts’ benefits and versatility while maintaining a premium price for our growers,” said Meredith Nagely, OHMB manager. “FLM Harvest uniquely understands the food industry value chain, as well as the consumer food landscape.”
FLM Harvest also represents the Mushroom Council, National Watermelon Promotion Board and Southern Peanut Growers.
