Brooks, OR-based Curry & Co. announced in a Jan. 13 press release that produce industry veteran Cameron Low recently joined the company and will focus on Curry's year-round sweet onion program for both domestic and imported sweet onions.
Mr. Low started his career in 1990 with Sysco Foodservice in California and then moved to Hollister, CA, joining Denice & Filice Packing in 1992. He took on the position of sales manager in 2000, working closely with peppers, onions, garlic, corn, melons and cherries.
Denice & Filice was acquired by Tanimura & Antle in 2004 and became Denice & Filice LLC. In 2007, Mr. Low helped integrate Denice & Filice LLC into Tanimura & Antle and became product manager for peppers and onions.

His reputation and broad product knowledge base is going to help us continue to grow as a company and more specifically as a leading supplier of year-round sweet onions."
