About Dundee Citrus Growers

Our Story

In 1924 Dundee Citrus Growers Association (Dundee CGA) was formed. Today Dundee CGA has grown into one of the largest fresh fruit cooperatives in the Florida Citrus Industry. Dundee CGA harvests multiple citrus varieties from 10,000+ citrus acres throughout the state of Florida. We offer one-stop availability with two of the most technologically advanced fresh fruit packinghouses in the state with nearly 100,000 square feet of cold storage capacity.

In addition to the finest selection of fresh Florida citrus, we now offer Florida blueberries and tree-ripened (ready-to-eat) peaches as part of our product family. Dundee CGA provides highest quality of Florida blueberries, citrus and tree-ripened peaches to major retailers, wholesalers, and food service distributors throughout the United States and Canada. Our fresh products are marketed under the Florida Classic Growers label.
