Sunkist Growers, a 120-year-old grower-owned citrus marketing cooperative, will be moving its headquarters from Sherman Oaks, CA, to Valencia, CA, this fall.
“This is an exciting time for Sunkist Growers,” Russell Hanlin, Sunkist's president and chief executive officer, said in a press release. “In the past few years, we have made significant advances on key strategic initiatives to position Sunkist for long-term growth and profitability — and the relocation of our headquarters is part of that strategy. We look forward to welcoming our growers, customers, licensees and other business partners to our new home in Valencia.”
The new building is located closer to Sunkist’s multiple growing areas and will allow the company to keep its current employee group intact. The company’s move, which will take place in phases, will occur in September.
The Sunkist cooperative of family farms, founded in 1893, offers more than 40 fresh citrus varieties and has thousands of grower members in California and Arizona.
