ABOUT US

Fruit Growers Supply Company is an agricultural services provider that was established in 1907 by the same growers that formed the Sunkist Marketing Cooperative. We were created in order to supply wood for Sunkist’s crates. We are the oldest non-profit supply cooperative in the nation. We have grown our vertically integrated business alongside the West Coast’s citrus production. We used to help Sunkist exclusively, but we’re now open to the public.

Before 1907, members of the Southern California Fruit Exchange (now Sunkist Growers) needed a steady supply of reasonably priced box shook for their wooden shipping crates. Unfortunately, most of the box shook manufacturers were operating at unreasonably high prices and had low supply. By joining forces in 1907, the Sunkist citrus growers created Fruit Growers Supply Company to buy and manage timberlands and mills, and to act as a purchasing agent for all of their supplies.

We were born out of adversity and have learned to adapt to our customers’ ever-changing environments. Throughout our long history when challenging demands have arisen in the agricultural industry, we have acted fast to solve them.

When a cartel controlled the sale of a chemicals that were critical to citrus growth, we brought back an alternative from Africa, forcing the cartel into a more reasonably competitive position. When the industry needed instant access to supplies, we established six storefronts throughout California and Arizona. When growers needed the most sophisticated, highest quality cartons ever created, we answered the call by designing one of America’s most highly-automated and efficient integrated carton supply systems.

Today, thanks to our vertically integrated services, we offer the kind of products and services you expect from a company that has thrived for over a century.
