- by Jessica Donnel
FOWLER, CA - 'Tis the season, and not just for merriment and cheer, but for citrus of all kinds! Bee Sweet Citrus announced that several specialty varieties are back in time for holiday meals, and helping push consumers into a healthy new year.
“Not only do our specialty citrus varieties offer a multitude of nutritional benefits, their diverse flavor profiles make them a perfect addition to many holiday meals and desserts,” said Director of Communications Monique Bienvenue, who also noted that there are many ways consumers can introduce citrus into those family meals.
From appetizers to salad dressing, Monique said in a press release that the category is a perfect way to lighten the meal while not compromising on taste.
“Over the next few weeks, buyers can expect a surge in demand for citrus fruits,” she continued. “While the holiday season provides families with various opportunities to utilize citrus in their meals, it’s also a time for families to stock up on immunity-boosting foods.”
With the holiday season officially here, the Bee Sweet Citrus sales team reported that there is enough volume to support seasonal promotions and consumer demand, including ample supply of Navel oranges, lemons, and Satsuma mandarins.
“With healthy food trends on the rise, incorporating citrus into holiday meals is a no-brainer,” Monique said. “Whether they prefer the classic taste of Navel oranges or the unique flavor of Minneola Tangelos, our citrus can help our consumers kick off the festive season on a healthy note.”
Over the next few weeks, consumers can also look forward to the return of Cara Cara Navels, Blood Oranges, and Minneola Tangelos. Eating one Navel orange or two Satsuma mandarins can help men and women meet over half the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. The same can be said for Cara Cara Navels and Minneola Tangelos, which are expected to be available to consumers by mid-December.
