Michael serves as our VP of Grower Relations. Upon graduating from California State University Fresno, Michael immediately began working at National Raisin Company in 1986 managing plant operations. He then moved to the grower relations department, where he worked side-by-side with his late father Krikor Bedrosian, mentoring him. Currently, Michael oversees our entire grower partnership old and new alike- acquiring dried fruit procurement for marketing needs, and making sure the entire dried fruit grower base is equipped with all the resources they need for a successful season. In addition, Michael is active in the plant as well, assisting in plant operations. Michael also is following his father’s footsteps by mentoring his son Ryan in the grower relations department.
Michael isn’t just involved at National Raisin Company, he also participates in boy scouts, 4-H, and Lego building with his two youngest sons. Michael’s favorite part about working at National Raisin Company is the longstanding relationships he’s built with his partners, co-workers, and of course his family.
