We want consumers around the world to experience the joy of eating premium fruit picked at the peak of flavor. To achieve this, we begin with proprietary fruit varieties developed at Sun World’s renowned Variety Development Center. Then we partner with the finest growers and marketers throughout the world. As a result, today Sun World fruit varieties are grown on over 23,000 acres on six continents, ensuring year-round supply of some of the best fruit available. To manage such a large network, we’ve established licensing offices in Chile, Italy, South Africa, Australia and Mexico. Our international licensing managers pick the most professional grower and marketer licensees to ensure that Sun World’s delicious proprietary grapes, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots are grown, harvested and delivered to our high specifications.
Licensees become a part of the Sun World family. We provide them with the technical and marketing support they need to succeed in today’s competitive global fruit market. We offer unparalleled technical support with on-site consultant visits, special group field days and international expos that foster innovation and cooperation. We also hold weekly taste panel evaluations throughout the Summerand Fall months, sending fruit trial results to our licensees worldwide to keep them updated on new varieties in the pipeline. Through our special Licensee web portal we offer licensees exclusive access to cutting-edge research and information about our new fruit varieties. And we connect licensed marketers and growers so they can work together to efficiently deliver produce to markets worldwide.
Ultimately, we offer so much support to our licensee family because we understand that knowledgeable growers and marketers equal better fruit, and better fruit is why we created Sun World.
