Fruitgrowers of the intermountain
country are enthusiastic in their
praise of the work of the North Pa­
cific Fruit Distributors’ association
and believe, particularly in Southern
Idaho and Eastern Oregon, that the
success of the rapidly-growing fruit
industry of the West largely depends
on the work of the big selling agency
which has been perfected.
The Idaho-Oregon Fruit Growers’
association is one of the largest and
most representative in the North Pa­
cific Fruit Distributors’ association.
