The Raisin Industry
Mourns the Passing of Ernie Bedrosian
Linda Kay Abdulian,
President/CEO, National Raisin Company issued the following message:
It is with great regret and
sadness I inform you that early morning January 1st, Raisin Industry
Icon, Family Patriarch and Co-Founder of National Raisin Company, Ernest
Bedrosian passed away.
As all of you know, Ernie
was an exceptionally gifted leader whose boundless energy galvanized the Raisin
Industry and led to so many accomplishments and contributions including the
formation of the Raisin Bargaining Association. Throughout his life,
Ernie genuinely cared about the industry as a whole, from grower to handler to
customer. Uncle worked tirelessly to develop new markets and establish
the California Raisin as the Premier Dried Fruit globally. We all knew
Ernie as a dynamic and charismatic person, who many called a "tiger"
but whose work ethic benefitted us all.
From the entire Bedrosian
Family we thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Funeral arrangements
will be announced shortly.
