Bee Sweet Citrus Pushes Mandarins for the New Year
- by Jordan Okumura
FOWLER, CA – Bee Sweet Citrus is encouraging retailers alike to stock up on mandarins with peak season already in full swing. And what better way to keep consumers’ healthy New Year’s resolutions on track than with a nutritious, flavorful snack?
“Many people are going to ring in the New Year with new health goals,” said Monique Bienvenue, Director of Communications. “Mandarins are an ideal choice for health enthusiasts everywhere because they’re low in calories, high in nutritional value, and full of flavor.”
Bee Sweet offers Clementine Mandarins, Murcott Mandarins, Page Mandarins, and Satsuma Mandarins, all of which are seedless, easy-to-peel, and sweet in flavor, according to a press release.
“One of the struggles that people face when starting a new health regiment is finding foods that are both healthy and filling,” Bienvenue continued. “Mandarins are a great snack for anyone looking to improve their health because they are extremely tasty and provide enough fiber to help curb hunger cravings.”
Ideal for on-the-go snacking or tossed in a salad, mandarins offer a great source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and flavonoids.
Both organic and conventional mandarins are available.
As we previously reported, Bee Sweet’s Sweetheart Mandarins carry the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) logo on the packaging to support the organization’s mission to find a cure for breast cancer. The family-owned company recently donated $50,000 to the foundation, raising a total of $100,000 since 2014.
Here’s to kicking off a healthy and happy new year!
