Sun Orchard loves the planet. A lot. So much so, we’re committed to being a sustainable food company by using eco-friendly sourcing, manufacturing and distribution practices. After all, our juice comes from the earth, so we need to treat Mother Nature well.
Our sustainable efforts start in the groves. We source the freshest fruit packed chock full of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber for juicing, and we cut down on transportation emissions and energy use by obtaining citrus as close as we can to our plants in Arizona, Florida and California. We extract juice from the citrus in our sustainable manufacturing facilities, with energy-efficient lighting and pasteurization, waste reduction, and water-conserving processes.
After we’ve crafted the tastiest beverages to serve as the highest-quality bar and restaurant food supplies, we reduce our contributions to landfills by recycling almost 90 percent of our waste. Since we revamped our recycling efforts in Arizona in September 2010, we have recycled more than 120 tons of waste. In Florida, our recycling efforts prevent more than 140 tons of waste from going to landfills each year, and our zero-citrus-waste program provides nearly 30,000 tons of citrus peels and seeds to farmers to use as all-natural feed yearly. Not only do human customers get to taste the goodness of our citrus, but animals are provided with quality citrus, too!
Once our healthy products are shipped, people who use our sustainable products are encouraged to do their part in sustainability, too. All our bottles are recyclable, as well as the carton packaging that’s made with recycled content itself.
And just like we care about how we treat the environment, Sun Orchard is a wholesale juice distributor that’s committed to keeping its customers healthy and happy. When it comes to high-quality juice, Sun Orchard’s high standards of food safety ensure tasty, healthy wholesale juices, and we never add high-fructose corn syrup to our lemonade, limeades or bar mixers, keeping them pure and all-natural to ensure quality food service products for our customers. Sun Orchard only gently pasteurizes our juices, which conserves energy and water, yet still destroys harmful bacteria while maintaining the natural enzymes, healthy nutrients, and fresh-squeezed flavors of the fruit. Our operating practices are continuously being improved, and Sun Orchard was a leader in making the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point practices a federal regulation for juice manufacturers. You and your business can be assured that Sun Orchard employs comprehensive measures to ensure our juice is safe, healthy and delicious.
Need further proof that we love the planet? Just look at our name: Sun Orchard. Everything we do here is done with the earth in mind, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting a green environment that helps produce the best-tasting juice around.
