Fraser Valley producers welcome home CPMA trade show

Welcoming the industry on its home turf of Vancouver for the first time since 2018, Oppy looks toward showcasing its local growers in booth #915 at this week's CPMA Convention + Trade Show.

"It's an honor to host from our headquarters this year," said Colbert Rahal, sales director for Canada. "Our hometown producers from the Fraser Valley have so many inspiring stories to impart — it's innovators like them who are making a difference in the industry, so it's quite special to share that with our retail partners during this top-notch show."

Oppy proudly presents its local partners, including:

  • Perpetual Vegetable Co.: With a focus on sustainability–its positioning line is "Life grows on,"--the company's high-tech greenhouse control systems allow for conserving and recycling water, carbon dioxide, and other valuable nutrients. They produce top-quality long English and mini cucumbers, and sweet bell and mini peppers.

  • UP Vertical Farms: With nearly a decade of research and development, UP uses cutting-edge technology to grow crops at 350 times the yield of conventional field-grown leafy greens. Its fully automated system uses 99 percent less water and fertilizer with no pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. It is also planning an exciting new launch later this spring.

  • Origin Organic Farms: As the first organically certified greenhouse in 2005, Origin Organic grows peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers to the exacting standards of Canadian organic specifications. It has developed unique drainage and irrigation systems and enriches the soil with stems and leaves of each generation of plants they grow.

  • Golden Eagle Farms: Among the largest blueberry holdings in the world and one of the largest members of the Ocean Spray cooperative, it is committed to the highest standards of cold-chain management and traceability. Its proximity to production fields ensures the retention of firmness and flavor in its blueberries and cranberries.

As an annual sponsor of the closing night banquet, Oppy will feature a cinematic journey of these key partners and what it's like to grow in one of the most fertile regions of the world.

"Sharing the unique qualities of our community isn't just an opportunity, but a cornerstone of the commitment we make to our customers. We anticipate presenting our offerings in a fresh perspective as well as collaborating on how we can continue meeting their evolving needs," said Rahal.
