Company History

A History Of Service & Satisfaction

Bee Sweet Citrus was founded in 1987 as an independent packer and shipper of California oranges. As our business grew, we added other citrus varieties; enabling Bee Sweet to become the industry leader it is today.

Now a successful year-round operation, Bee Sweet ships throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and several Pacific Rim countries including Japan. We have become a “one stop shop” for all citrus commodities – an important advantage in today’s competitive marketplace. Yet, despite our growth and capabilities, we still offer personal customer service and a heartfelt commitment to each of our growers and buyers. We still proudly take a “hands-on” approach to the growing, packing, marketing and shipping aspect of our growers’ fruit.

With a product list that includes Navel and Valencia oranges, lemons, grapefruit, mandarins – even exotic specialties like minneolas and pummelos – Bee Sweet Citrus offers the freshest, best-tasting California citrus with the service and availability you demand.
