Bee Sweet Citrus Company Begins Annual Import Program
FOWLER, CA - Bee Sweet Citrus President Jim Marderosian has announced the beginning of the company’s summer import program.
“Bee Sweet Citrus is a one-stop-shop for all citrus commodities,” said Marderosian. “Through our import program, we are able to provide our consumers with a variety of products—regardless of the season.”
For over 15 years, Bee Sweet Citrus has been developing a close relationship with citrus growers in Australia, Chile, and Peru. In order to ensure the safety of imported products from these countries, the Bee Sweet Citrus Quality Control team sees that all products are certified and audited in food safety, social accountability, and sustainability.
“All imported product, once off-loaded at the port, is trucked straight to our facility where it’s re-graded to ensure the highest quality,” said Bee Sweet Citrus Sales Representative Anders Skooglund. “Additionally, we offer our customers the ability to repack and reconfigure the fruit to any specific pack style that they may want during these months.”
Starting May and going through to October, Bee Sweet Citrus receives imported Clementines, Navals, Cara Caras, Minneolas, and lemons. The Bee Sweet Citrus team also handles all import clearance, logistics, inventory and conducts weekly market analysis calls with their international partners, according to a press release.
Marderosian continued that Bee Sweet prides itself in the ability to provide its consumers with citrus any time of year through the company’s summer import program.
