It started as a dream. The dusty, windswept Santa Clara Valley would one day be "a vast fruit orchard." That dream took shape in 1897 when seven bold pioneers united to form a cooperative: the Fillmore Citrus Fruit Association. From the very beginning they set out to grow the finest citrus in the world. Essential to this new venture was a grower-owned packing house. This would ensure that the citrus would be packed and shipped to protect that just-picked freshness.
Today that dream has not only endured, it has flourished. Our deep company roots produce the highest quality. That time-tested process makes sure the citrus arrives fresh, fragrant and juicy good. Yes, it's a journey that has taken us over a 100 years to perfect… but only a moment for you to savor.
