Family Owned

Oregon Fruit has been family-owned since its founding by the Gehlar family in 1935. In 2011, the Maletis family took the reins. 

Ed and Cyndy Maletis and their three sons, Andy, Bryan, and John, have deep ties to Oregon and are committed to building a legacy of caring about the community and people they work with.

Our community

We’ve built strong, cooperative bonds with our growers based on a foundation of respect and integrity. That’s why many of them have worked with us for generations. We approach all our relationships the same way. Whether customer, employee, community or grower: We know that if we do right by them, they’ll do the same for us. 

OUR commitment

We  serve and inspire those who want more than just a bland peach or a lifeless cherry. Who prefer fruits bursting with the honesty of the earth they come from.

From the eccentric chefs and renegade bartenders to the midnight bakers and the sunrise pancake makers, our goal is to provide you with the highest quality real fruit ingredients you can get. So that you can bring your ideas to life. 

Our quality

We’re very selective about the fruit we source. Our growers know that we only accept the best and that we’re willing to pay for it. They set aside the literal cream of the crop so that you always get fruit that looks and tastes great.
