FGF Trapani S.R.L. (limited liability company) is an agricultural and export company with a record of three generations of a family devoted for over 60 years to the exploitation of lemons (and other citrus fruits) and their by-products, marketing raw materials for the industry and fresh fruit in Argentina and worldwide.It was founded in 2002, starting as a net export company of fresh citrus fruits, mainly lemons. The activity was organized from a commercial perspective and an important group of independent producers was concentrated. This group opted to furnish their fruit to FGF Trapani. At the beginning, his work was carried out using a wholly rented packaging structure, which allowed the rapid growth of the business volumes. After the company consolidated as the third most important fresh lemon exporter in Argentina, the need to invest in farms, packaging and the industry in order to put down roots was realized and thus it started to consolidate its position as a company, achieving a productive, industrial and commercial integration.At the present time (2013), FGF Trapani owns a 550-hectare of lemon and orange farms; a completely innovative industrial plant for the extraction of lemon juice, oil and peel, with an annual milling capacity of 60,000 tons of fruit; and a packing plant to carry out over the 50%of the fresh fruit export.FGF Trapani aims to be a leader Argentinean company, mainly compromised with its HR (human resources) and its habitat.

Suntreat Packing & Shipping Co. is an independently owned and operated citrus packing company. We are located in the San Joaquin Valley, the heart of California’s world-renowned agricultural region. We pack and sell California’s finest citrus—from perennial favorites such as lemons and oranges to emerging varieties and specialties including Sumo Citrus®, Oro Blanco grapefruit and Gold Nugget mandarins.
Suntreat’s hometown of Lindsay, California, is along the historical ‘citrus belt’ of the Central Valley. Although citrus is grown around the world, California has arguably the best growing conditions combining fertile soil, warm summers and cool winters to produce the sweetest tasting, best looking citrus available anywhere.
To guarantee the availability of top-quality fruit throughout the year, Suntreat has developed deep relationships with California’s best citrus growers, whose groves are located between southern Kern County and Fresno County in the north.
Throughout our 50-plus year history, we’ve partnered with the finest growers and built our business based on innovation, reliability and consistently great products.
Today the third and fourth generation of our family farmers maintain their passion for growing citrus and delivering top-quality fruit.
What does it take to be one of the best and most diverse fruit breeding programs in the world? It goes beyond breeding for taste and good looks. It’s about doing this in a way that is consistently producer friendly. It’s about combining best practice with ethical natural methods. We don’t get involved in GMO’s. Our germplasm repositor of parent stock is hand-pollinated. Each seedling is a unique child (genotype) grown in a natural environment.Our in-field evaluation process ensures that new varieties are stable and robust before we release them commercially. It’s about being in partnership with our producers. About teaming up with responsible growers, who are excited about developing new varieties and looking for developmental support to get their produce to market quickly, and in top condition. It’s all about teamwork. Our international family of breeder associates, producers and marketers work together to ensure 12-month supply to top end consumers. We believe in our varieties, and the people who plant them. That’s why we are shareholders, together with our producers in joint venture companies.
