History Makers 2017: Reser's Fine Foods

Oregon Historical Society, History Makers 2017. Interview by KGW

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Reser's products have been a staple of Oregon dinner tables and picnics ever since Earl and Mildred Reser started the company in their farmhouse kitchen in 1950.

The Beaverton-based company now boasts more than 3,000 employees at 17 facilities in the United States and Mexico and over $1 billion in annual sales. Oregon State University is just one of many Oregon institutions and non-profit organizations that have benefited from the generous philanthropic giving of the Reser Family.
