“Supreme” literally means “Superior to all others.” This was and continues to be the driving force behind the SUPREME brand. Our mission is to create a brand that is synonymous with the highest quality and best eating characteristics. To create this, we must start with the best fruit. We have carefully selected the best groves in each growing area with respect to region, soil and variety to provide the same consistent quality from the beginning to the end of each season. Every ranch is harvested at its optimal quality and carefully packed to SUPREME specifications.
While we pay special attention to the external quality and cosmetic grade of each piece of fruit, we also understand that to create satisfied customers we must deliver a great eating orange as well. To achieve this, we must start well before harvest by carefully testing the fruit prior to harvest to meet our selected requirements on Brix, Acid and Ratio. The fruit is again tested during harvest and again at packing to make sure we are maintaining the selected criteria and delivering the best eating fruit that we can.
While Supreme provides a premium export quality orange we have two special programs that make the Supreme experience more specialized.
Supreme Reserve High Brix
Once all of the quality specifications and procedures for Supreme are met we further separate the fruit during packing to isolate the fruit with the very best eating quality. We utilize the latest packing technology to sense the Brix (sugar) and Acid in each piece of fruit with optical readers and then pack that fruit into Supreme Reserve.
Supreme Reserve Heirloom Naval
Growers and Citrus aficionados all know that some of the best eating fruit comes from the oldest trees. Unlike many fruit trees, citrus tree’s produce fruit for 80 or more years if they are taken care of. When the industry was being developed in the San Joaquin Valley, these legendary citrus groves were planted on the best soil with the best sources of water. These groves are still producing fantastic quality fruit today. We have isolated these blocks to be picked, packed and specially cultivated to be packed under Supreme Reserve.
