The Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission (OSCC) was formed in 1989 by a majority vote of cherry growers in the state. The purpose of the commission is to coordinate assessment revenue collected for research to improve agricultural practices and cherry production and to participate in promotional efforts to increase cherry sales domestically and internationally.
This website is being set up as a centralized contact point for OSCC activities and to help share industry information with cherry growers around the state. Please feel free to contact the OSCC office with your suggestions and comments.
Future Meeting Note: The next OSCC regular meeting scheduled for Wednesday, August 16, 2017 has been changed to Wednesday, August 23, 2017 starting at 11:15 a.m. The meeting location is the second-floor classroom in the Food Innovation Center, 1207 NW Naito Parkway, Portland, OR. Prior to the regular meeting in the same location opening at 10:00 a.m. there will be a public hearing to take comments on a proposed Administrative Rule change to reduce the assessments on brined cherries.
