Premier Citrus is one of Florida’s largest citrus landowners and farm managers: growers of oranges and grapefruit, and through its size and diversity of variety and geography, can more strategically place product to market, with buying and marketing advantages related to scale, product diversity, and location.
Our network of farm managers and citrus grove holdings cover six different counties throughout Florida’s southern citrus belt, generally below the hard freeze line. These counties Indian River, St. Lucie, Osceola, Highlands, Desoto, and Hendry Counties, all representing most of the Flatwoods citrus growing regions where water permits and availability afford ample supply for both irrigation supply and freeze protection.
Premier’s control and focus on process controls throughout its integrated growing, harvesting, packing and shipping sets the Florida standard, as by their Global Gap certifications year in and year out. This focus on food safety is the foundation for building strong customer relationships in Europe, the Pacific basin and the US.
