Employment Overview

Growing a successful cooperative requires talented people who share a common purpose: providing the world with the quality fresh fruit and products they expect and trust from the Sunkist brand. Our employees grow, too—in a nourishing environment that brings out the best in people.

For over 100 years, the Sunkist name has represented more than 1,000 citrus growers who band together to form our cooperative. These growers/owners charge each Sunkist employee with maintaining and protecting our co-op’s rich heritage, the strong commitment to quality, and the history of collaboration and innovation. We look for talented individuals with different backgrounds, experiences, and abilities to be part of our energetic, dynamic team environment.

Our headquarters in Valencia, California houses our Executive team and the majority of our employees in Sales Management, Marketing, Export Sales, Finance, IT, Transportation, Global Licensing, Legal, Administration, and Human Resources. Our fresh fruit domestic sales team is deployed in strategic locations throughout the United States and Canada to best serve our customers. Our Research and Technical Services team is headquartered in Rancho Cucamonga, California with service technicians throughout California and Arizona.
