The Fruit Company

Workforce Challenge

The Fruit Company, an online fruit gifting company, had an opportunity to fulfill a large holiday order of fruit tower gifts for Costco but needed to complete Food Safety Training in a very short amount of time to meet Costco’s time-line.

Workforce Solution

Local workforce organizations provided the needed training with funding from the Oregon Workforce Alliance.

Outcomes & Benefits

The company was able to train 186 workers in time to meet the Costco requirements and the deadline. "The success of this project is tied directly to the growth of the company and creation of jobs in the Hood River area, not just at The Fruit Company, but at other companies in the area that have been involved in supporting our increased sales volume," according to Scott Webster, CEO for the Fruit Company.
