The California Citrus Quality Council has scheduled a workshop on the Fuller rose beetle
The two-hour workshop, 1 p.m., June 17, at the Visalia Convention Center, will address the pest’s effect on exports and its control.
VISALIA, Calif. — Between rising demand for easy-to-peel citrus and a reduction in assessments, growers have good reason to pack under the Cuties label, Sun Pacific chief executive officer Berne Evans told potential recruits at the Visalia Convention Center.
Sun Pacific is following up its acquisition of the Cuties brand from Paramount Citrus with a June 11 meeting aimed at bringing new growers and packers into its clementine and mandarin program.
Capitalizing on retailers’ and consumers’ familiarity with Wonderful Brands, Paramount Citrus will market its California-grown clementines and mandarins as Wonderful Halos beginning this fall.
A subsidiary of Los Angeles-based Roll Global LLC, Paramount is relying on Roll’s portfolio of Wonderful Brands to help it maintain its position in the California mandarin deal after selling the Cuties clementine brand to former partner Sun Pacific Cos., Pasadena, Calif.
