Seald Sweet International has increased its volume this season by 10%.
New groves coming into fruition accounted for the increase for the Vero Beach, Fla., grower-shipper, said Dave Brocksmith, Florida citrus manager.
Seald Sweet plans to pack a little more than 2 million equivalent cartons of grapefruit, oranges and tangerines this season form two Florida packinghouses.
Seald Sweet packs from Ben Hill Griffin Inc., Frostproof, Fla., and Hunts Bros. Cooperative, Lake Wales, Fla.
