VALENCIA, CA - We are entering a new era—a new era of Cara Caras, that is. Sunkist Growers has announced the makeover of the popular variety, catching consumers’ eyes and boosting register rings in the process.

Cassie Howard, Senior Director of Category Management and Marketing, Sunkist Growers“…we're really excited about a new era of Cara Caras. This year, we revamped all of our packaging and our merchandising with the new tagline, 'The Pink Orange,' and everything is pink,” says Cassie Howard, Senior Director of Category Management and Marketing. “This variety continues to grow, and we're seeing more consumers educated about the variety and really starting to engage with it, and we want to highlight what makes it unique, which is its pink interior.”

All of Sunkist’s new pink packaging focuses on educating shoppers to get them excited about the unique variety. Currently, the cooperative offers the variety in a number of formats, with 3 lb bags being the top seller. Volume for Cara Caras has risen 20 percent in the last year alone.
