Florida Classic Growers has a rich history, dating back to 1924 when the Dundee Citrus Growers Association (CGA) was formed. Today, Dundee CGA is one of the largest fresh fruit cooperatives in the Florida citrus industry.
A consistent leader in volume, Dundee CGA harvests over 10,000+ acres of membership fruit and is comprised of some of the oldest cooperatives in the state (Lake Wales Citrus Growers Association, Winter Haven Citrus Growers Association and Lake Region Packing Association).
Florida Classic Growers is owned by Dundee CGA and is the exclusive marketer of the Florida Classic label. Over a nine month-long growing season, we pack and ship a full line of fresh Florida citrus, including grapefruit, kumquats, navels, oranges, pummelos, tangelos and tangerines, ensuring extended availability to you and your customers.
In addition to the finest selection of fresh Florida citrus, we now offer Florida blueberries and tree-ripened (ready-to-eat) peaches as part of our product family. Florida Classic Growers surpasses our competition, with load volume and one-stop availability on Florida blueberries, citrus and peach varieties. Florida Classic is a quality supplier of Florida blueberries, citrus and tree-ripened peaches to major retailers, wholesalers, and food service distributors throughout the United States and Canada. Our products are all marketed under the Florida Classic label.
Additionally, we operate two of the most technologically advanced packing facilities for all of our products. Our combined cooler capacity alone is nearly 100,000 square feet! We are located in central Florida with facilities just 1.5 miles from one another.
