Eagle Eye Produce Highlights Dan Corn in Grower Spotlight Video
NYSSA, OR - A brand is only as strong as the people behind it, and don’t we know it here in the produce industry! To bring the hard-working individuals to the forefront of its brand, Eagle Eye Produce has rolled out a Grower Spotlight video segment. Most recently, the company highlighted Oregon-based onion grower Dan Corn and his strategically located operation.
“Growers like Dan are our brand. He is knowledgeable, passionate, and dedicated to his work, and we are committed to supporting him, and all of our growers succeed,” said Dallin Klinger of Marketing and Communications. “Everyone at Eagle Eye Produce shares a passion for putting healthy food on the table.”
Dallin explained that the company started working with Dan about 15 years ago. Like many growers in the Eagle Eye fold, Dan is a multi-generational farmer, so the company has worked with his family for years. By highlighting the hard work of farmers like Dan, Eagle Eye has innovated the relationship between a consumer and a supplier.
“We continue to invest in projects like this to try to form a personal relationship between the grower and the end consumer. Food is a deeply personal thing, and personal connection is something that we seem to have less of these days,” Dallin continued. “It is easy to get wrapped up in the market and the end product, but we need to continue to shine a spotlight on the people behind the food and the brand.”
Dan and his wife Melissa are staples and stewards of their community, earning them the well-deserved title of Nyssa Chamber of Commerce's Agriculturist of the Year Award in March. It’s their hard work and dedication that truly sets the Eagle Eye brand apart.
The video above outlines an incredibly successful onion season as the company ramps up to ship its new crop of yellow, red, and white onions coming in just a few weeks. Eagle Eye is expecting fantastic yield, quality, and size from this year's crops in Eastern Oregon, so retailers had better clear some space in their onion displays!
