Morning Kiss expects healthy crop of organic citrus

Anticipation of citrus season is high, and Morning Kiss expects a healthy crop of organic options to satisfy rising consumer demand with promotional volume and advertising opportunities.

MorningKiss Organic-Offerings The California organic citrus crop is expected to be down slightly from last year, but still plentiful and a very robust program on all sizes and offerings is expected. Program offerings will include grapefruit, lemons, tangerines, mandarins, cara-cara navels, navels, and minneola. Whether enjoyed at home with seasonal recipes, or as convenient, on-the-go snacks, consumers love citrus. And the demand for organic options continues to grow.
