Fresh Packing

We are growers who are committed to delivering the freshest, highest-quality, best- tasting fruit in the marketplace. Every year we process over half a million tons of fresh citrus in the world’s largest citrus packinghouses.

Our fruit comes directly from the grove to the packinghouses where it is quickly graded, packed and sent to our customers. The integration of our Delano, California, Mission, Texas, and Mexico packinghouses with our shipping facilities provides a complete logistics solution for efficient customer loading and delivery, and ensures the freshest fruit for our customers.

We can guarantee that our products are always shipped as soon as possible. In fact, we are one of the few suppliers that can provide this high-quality fresh citrus all year round.

The newest addition to our family is a state-of-the art Wonderful® Halos® Mandarins packinghouse, it measures in at 640,000 sq. ft., the equivalent of 11 football fields. This plant runs 20 hours a day, six days a week in season. It has the capacity to process 4,000 bins of fruit daily and can store up to 31 million pounds of Wonderful Halos in the cold storage rooms. The plant’s Compac presort line is 310 feet, making it the longest electronic sizer and grader in the world with more than 5 miles of chain.
