Our Industry

We’re not just growing fruit here.
We’re growing the economy.

The tree fruit industry in British Columbia’s interior represents more than 800 growers operating orchards that generate $130 million in revenue, contribute $900 million in economic activity and directly employ 1,500 people.

In addition, the industry provides economic spin-off to partner industries such as transportation, food processing and retail. Apples make up about 80% of our production with 98% grown in the Okanagan Valley.

BC Tree Fruits Cooperative is a true co-operative: the growers own the packing houses, BC Tree Fruits and their associated assets.
