Sunkist Growers, Incorporated
It was formed in 1893 as the Southern California Fruit Exchange; by 1905, the group represented 5,000 members, 45% of the California citrus industry, and renamed itself the California Fruit Growers Exchange. It adopted the "Sunkist" name in 1908 for its highest quality oranges, and so was the first to brand fruit.
