Sunsweet Growers Inc. is the world's largest handler of dried fruits including prunes, apricots and mangos, and more. We’re a grower-owned cooperative representing more than one-third of the prune market worldwide and we process nearly 70,000 tons of prunes a year!
Founded in 1917 as the California Prune and Apricot Growers Association, our cooperative served as a marketing group to offer our crops to the public under the brand name "Sunsweet®". This allowed us to offer prunes to the mainstream market by combining production capabilities and marketing communication. Today, Sunsweet processes and markets the dried fruit production of more than 300 grower-members with orchards primarily throughout California's central valley. We’re proud to say that Sunsweet is one of the top American brands, trusted by our loyal customers.
Our Yuba City, California headquarters is also home to the world's largest dried fruit processing plant, with the highest product quality standards anywhere. Each day, an average of 40,000 cases of Sunsweet products are sealed and marked for worldwide distribution. Sunsweet also holds a bottling facility in Fleetwood, Pennsylvania for its juice products.
Staying close to our customers is important. That’s why Sunsweet products can be purchased at most grocery, drug, and club store retailers throughout the world, or at the Sunsweet Gift Shop.
