Oregon Raspberry & Blackberry Commission

The Oregon Raspberry & Blackberry Commission (ORBC) was established in 1981. At that time the commission was called the Oregon Caneberry Commission. After years of struggling with public confusion over the term “caneberry”, the commission changed its name in 1992. Caneberries are berries that grow on a cane, such as raspberries, blackberries, Marionberries, and Boysenberries. The commission consists of nine members: six growers, two packers and one public member. Their primary focus is promotion of caneberries. Strong secondary directions are research and education. The ORBC has over 200 growers in Oregon.
