Grower working with growers
Our business model is to provide full service solutions and efficient in-house cost structures to our customers, partners and vendors. By partnering with South American growers we are able to bring year-round fresh citrus solutions to our retailers and reduce costs by utilizing our assets year-round.
PARTNERS WITH SHARED VALUES
We use our knowledge as a Florida grower to select the most reliable and quality-focused suppliers who align with our core values and sustainable practices. We work with the same growers year after year in order to create meaningful, transparent partnerships that foster win-win opportunities for customers, partners and vendors.
A COMMUNITY OF GLOBAL FARMERS
As growers, we benefit from these strategic partnerships as we come together to deliver value to each stakeholder. For us, this includes sharing innovative farming practices, reducing food miles, providing value-added packaging, creating strong retailer programs, reducing costs and increasing grower returns per acre.

The most professional Chilean growers
Infrastructure and assets to deliver quality and volume
The consistency and reliability of our exclusive Chilean partners allows us to fulfill our Summer Citrus programs delivering the quality, volume and specs requested by our retailers. Our Chilean partners grow fresh mandarins, lemons, and navel oranges. They operate impressive state of the art packinghouse facilities, and have a culture of process improvement and lean management that ensures taste quality, food safety and efficiency throughout.
A unique growing region in Peru
Partners that focus on social and environmental responsibility
Growing citrus in Peru almost feels like a controlled environment. Due to the desert climate, there are less pests and diseases and water is tightly controlled. While water can be scarce in a desert, our growers partner with leading Israeli companies to create advanced irrigation technologies that ensure trees get the proper water and nutrients from the mountaintops and valleys, responsibly. They also grow and develop beneficial insects onsite to reduce the need of pesticides on their crops.
Strategic distribution model
We supply the Southeast US market with fruit imported into the port of Miami rather than the traditional northern ports. Our distribution and packing center is strategically located in the Southeast and in close proximity to the port of Miami. This gives us a unique opportunity to reduce food miles and improve supply chain logistics for the Southeast U.S. retail distribution of citrus.
