When our founder and CEO, Berne Evans, purchased 72 acres of orange groves in the San Joaquin Valley in 1969, he had a vision – to cultivate the fertile California land and create specialty crops that would delight customers across North America and beyond.
This pioneering spirit led unprecedented innovation in the citrus category, resulting in the highest quality consumer and customer preferred brands in the marketplace. Our industry-leading produce includes Cuties Clementines and Mandarins, Mighties Kiwi, Air Chief Navel and Valencia Oranges, Lemons, Table Grapes and Vintage Sweets™ Heirloom Navel Oranges, among other delightful and healthy offerings.
Cuties – In 1999, Sun Pacific founder, Berne Evans, brought to life the first large-scale California-grown Clementine and Mandarin production in North America, effectively introducing the irresistibly sweet, seedless and easy-to-peel fruit to customers across the U.S. His vision paid off – Cuties is now the most trusted Mandarin brand in the market and cherished by families everywhere.
