Growers Lead the Way on Quality

As an agricultural cooperative, Sunsweet® controls quality from the ground up. The growers are the owners of the company, and together they share information about the most modern methods of planting, cultivation, integrated pest control and harvesting.

Sunsweet has long been recognized as one of the world’s most successful agricultural cooperatives, in which the growers reap the full benefits of their labor.

These benefits have been reinvested over the years into all stages of post-harvest handling. From initial drying to final processing, as well as in pitting, pit detection and packaging innovation, Sunsweet holds (or has pending) no fewer than five separate patents that ensure unparalleled
product quality.

Sunsweet’s technical and quality dedication makes us uniquely qualified to address the increasing demand for premium dried fruits and juices.
