To celebrate their successes, Western Growers (WG) is honoring Miles and Garland Reiter during the Award of Honor Dinner at Western Growers’ 91st Annual Meeting in Hawaii. This is the first time in WG’s history that the Board of Directors has chosen two individuals to receive the award together, and there is no better pair worthy of this honor than the extraordinary brother duo who have established themselves as pioneers in the berry industry.

Together, the Reiter brothers have expanded the market for berries and developed new berry commodities for consumers. They have not only preserved the legacy that preceded them, but grown their companies to be among the leaders in the agricultural industry. Learn more about their achievements in the “A Family Tradition: Reiter Brothers Build a Berry Legacy” story recently featured in WG&S magazine.
