Bakersfield, Calif.-based Sun World International LLC has licensed El Ciruelo S. L., Spain, to pack and market Sun World’s proprietary varieties of apricots, plums, peaches and nectarines.

“Its (El Ciruelo’s) leadership role in the Spanish fruit industry, along with its extensive United Kingdom and Continental European client base, will only strengthen Sun World’s international licensing platform and the visibility of our varieties and brands throughout Europe,” Johan Jooste, Sun World’s vice president of international licensing, said in a news release.

El Ciruelo grows, packs, markets and exports stone fruit, table grapes and lemons on nearly 2,500 acres, according to the company’s website.

Among the Sun World proprietary varieties that El Ciruelo will market are Black and Red Diamond and Black and Red Giant plums, Amber Crest peaches, Honeycot apricots and Super Star nectarines, according to the release.

Previously El Ciruelo was licensed to market Sun World’s proprietary table grape varieties.   

The new licensing agreement with El Ciruelo brings to 15 the number of companies worldwide that are permitted to market Sun World stone fruit, the release said.
