Western Growers would like to extend congratulations to an agriculture legend and long-time WG member, Nish Noroian, who turned 100 years old today. The centenarian’s daughter, Nisha Noroian,  was interviewed about her father earlier this year for a member profile piece for the WG&S Magazine.

Western Growers thanks Nish for all of his support and years of service to our Association and the industry.

Happy 100th!
