Bee Sweet Citrus' Joe Berberian Shares Expanded Organic Line, Sustainability Efforts, and More
FOWLER, CA – Joe Berberian, Salesman at Bee Sweet Citrus, recently joined AndNowUKnow for an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the company’s facility in Fowler, CA, its expanded organic citrus line, and much more.
The family-owned company has grown its organic citrus line to include more than just lemons. Bee Sweet Citrus has now added navel oranges, grapefruit, and mandarins to further diversify its portfolio and meet the ever-evolving needs of its retail partners.
“Each year, we’re going to continue to grow [our organic] program,” Berberian tells us.
The "one-stop-shop" citrus grower also offers several conventional varieties from December through February, as well as specialty citrus items starting in November through February.
Earlier this year, the company donated $50,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) for the second consecutive year, raising a total of $100,000. Bee Sweet’s Sweetheart Mandarins and Satsuma bags proudly display the BCRF’s logo to promote breast cancer awareness.
In addition to working with the community, Bee Sweet has launched a go-green initiative that includes the installation of 4.5 acres of solar on the facility’s rooftop, as well as a recycling system for water.
