The Washington Apple Commission is to launch the first worldwide Washington Apple Week from 1st to 6th December. The aim is to celebrate the quality apples grown in the state and build trust with consumers and buyers across the world. Washington currently exports to over 60 markets worldwide. Eight growers were selected as ambassadors for the Washington Apple Brand: Andy Arnold, Carlos Lopez, John Freese, Jose Ramirez, Lindsey Morrison, Dave and Karla Robison, and James Foreman. In teams, the growers will travel to one of three key export markets (Mexico, Southeast Asia, and India) and recount their stories first-hand.
