Sunkist Growers Reports Growth at 2019 Annual Meeting
VALENCIA, CA - At Sunkist Growers’ 125th annual meeting, the citrus cooperative elected its Board of Directors. Russ Hanlin, President and CEO, also reviewed last season’s results and noted that Sunkist saw manageable-sized, high-quality crops that resulted in solid grower returns.
“We are privileged to serve over 2,000 grower members and are proud to provide the high-quality, healthy citrus they produce to customers and consumers around the globe,” Hanlin stated in a recent press release. “Our goal is to provide profitable returns through efficiencies in crop management along with synchronized sales and marketing strategies.”
Gerald Denni, Chairman of Sunkist’s Board of Directors, was re-elected at this meeting, and spoke of the company’s strategy in the years to come.
“Sunkist was founded on the principle that we are stronger together,” he said. “As a cooperative that has been in existence for just over 125 years, we have a wealth of history and knowledge that has been passed down for generations, and we will use those tools to address each season’s unique set of challenges.”
