Sunkist is a leading international citrus supplier, but you might be surprised to know that they don’t own a single citrus grove. And although they're a billion dollar a year organization, you can’t buy stock-because there isn’t any.

Why?

Because Sunkist is a cooperative – a not-for-profit company. Our members, consisting of California and Arizona citrus growers, have joined forces to produce the high-quality Sunkist® fruit you’ve come to know and love. Sunkist is the oldest continually operating citrus cooperative in America and the largest marketing cooperative in the world’s fruit and vegetable industry.
And this is their story…
In 1870, three navel orange trees from Brazil arrived at the Riverside, California home of Eliza and Luther Tibbets, a gift from State Agricultural Commissioner William Saunders. California’s citrus industry was about to take off. After five years, the Tibbets’ harvested their first crop. Word spread about their sweet, seedless oranges and bud stock from Eliza and Luther’s amazing trees began selling for $5 a bud!

When the transcontinental railroad was completed in 1877, Joseph Wolfskill shipped his first load of oranges to St. Louis, MO. The fruit survived the month-long trip and delighted easterners can’t get enough of it! The wholesale marketing of California citrus had begun.

In 1891, wholesale agents decided that they would pay growers only after the citrus was sold and even as growers assumed all the risk, the agents were the ones making most of the profits.

Then in 1893, the independent growers decide to band together and form the Southern California Fruit Exchange. In 1908, the Exchange’s ad agency, Lord & Thomas, coined a new name to use in ad campaigns and the trademark Sunkist was adopted for use on the highest quality oranges.

In 1916, ads suggested that we “Drink an Orange.” What a cool new idea! Suddenly everyone wanted orange juice. Consumption went from one orange to 2 oranges per serving!

Fresh oranges stamped with the Sunkist trademark started showing up in markets in 1926 and by 1993 Sunkist celebrated its 100th birthday!

Sunkist Growers now have 6,500 members in California and Arizona. The average grove is 40 acres. And worldwide annual sales are well over 80 million cartons of fresh fruit!

 

Box contains 36 Sunkist 12 oz. Cans.
