Published 12 November 2015

Grower-owned cooperative Oregon Cherry Growers is debuting the first line of maraschinos made with non-GMO certified Fairtrade cane sugar, is unveiling its latest innovation – this time in packaging.

The cooperative's popular Royal Harvest Bordeaux-Style Maraschinos and The Royal Cherry Maraschinos, featuring hand-picked cherries grown in the Northwest, are now available in stand-up pouches at select retailers across the country, liquor stores in Oregon and on Amazon.com.

The no-mess, convenient and re-sealable stand-up pouches are the first to market in the maraschino category, and feature transparent packaging for product visibility. As with all Oregon Cherry Growers products, the cherries are of the highest quality and freshness standards.

"We take great pride in delivering the products our customers are looking for, and we know convenient packaging is an increasingly important factor," said Tim Ramsey, Oregon Cherry Growers President and CEO. "We have had great response to the new pouches so far and expect them to be popular with people looking to enhance their cocktail experience or liven up their desserts."

The pouches are available in three varieties:

Royal Harvest™ Bordeaux-Style Maraschino Cherries, which are rich and dark in color, free of preservatives, made with natural ingredients and sweetened with Non-GMO certified Fairtrade® cane sugar. Available in 8 and 4 ounce sizes.
Royal Harvest™ Nature's Maraschino Cherries, which are ruby red cherries, free of preservatives, made with all natural ingredients and sweetened with Non-GMO certified Fairtrade® cane sugar to retain that "just picked" cherry taste. Available in the 4 ounce pouch.
The Royal Cherry® Maraschinos, are Oregon Cherry Grower's traditional maraschino cherries with stems. Available in 8 and 4 ounce sizes.

Suggested retail prices are $3.69 for a 4 ounce pouch and $4.69 for the 8 ounce, available immediately in eight pack cases.
