We’re less than 50 days away from the start of the 91st Annual Meeting being held at the Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa in Kauai. This fun-filled and informative event is bringing hundreds of Western Growers’ members together to mix and mingle amid Hawaii’s lush tropical setting. As always, the Annual Meeting would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. As we prepare to don our Hawaiian shirts and dresses, Western Growers would like to thank all of our sponsors for their generous support! See a list of all of our sponsors below.

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.
