Our Heritage

For over 70 years, Tropicana® has been committed to bringing the goodness of fresh fruit to your breakfast table every day.

1921

The Rossi Spirit

The Tropicana® story begins with Anthony Rossi, an immigrant from Sicily who arrived in the US in 1921 with $25 in his pocket and a passion for fresh, delicious fruit.

1947

Tropicana® Starts Off

At first, Rossi sold fruit gift boxes in Florida. But there was much more he wanted to accomplish with the simple orange. He quickly evolved his business to sell freshly squeezed, 100% pure orange juice.

1953

Tropicana® Finds a Home

Tropicana® is moved to Bradenton, Florida, where it is still situated today.

1970

From Grove to Glass

Rossi pioneered pasteurization, packaging and transportation processes for orange juice. For the first time, people could enjoy the fresh taste of pure 100% Florida orange juice in a ready-to-serve package.

1988

The Birth of an Icon

In 1988, a graphic freaturing a red- and white-striped straw sticking out of an orange was first used in advertising to represent the fresh taste of Tropicana juices.

1991

Canada’s Debut

Tropicana® expands to Canada. It was the first brand to bring fresh, not from concentrate chilled juices to Canada.

1996

Introduced Tropics

For delicious Tropical flavours, we launched our Tropicana® Tropics line. So you can escape the day to day with a little taste of fruit‑filled paradise.

1999

Introduced Essentials

For more functional benefits without sacrificing taste, we introduced our Tropicana Essentials® line, including Tropicana Essentials® with added Calcium & Vitamin D in 1999 and Tropicana Essentials® Low Acid in 2000.

2006

Introduced 100% Fruit Juices

Oranges aren't the only fruit that taste delicious on its own. In 2006, we expanded our 100% Freshly Pressed juices to include Tropicana Pure Premium® 100% Red Grapefruit Juice and Tropicana ® 100% Apple Juice.

2011

Introduced Trop50

For the same Tropicana® orange juice you love, but with 50% less sugar and calories, we launched Trop50®.

Introduced Farmstand

2014

Tropicana® Puts The Good in Morning Campaign

The Tropicana® Puts The Good in Morning campaign was a clever way to show that each bottle of our Tropicana® 100% Pure Orange Juice contains 16 oranges, and nothing else.

2016

One Ingredient Campaign

Our One Ingredient campaign shared the simple journey of our Tropicana® 100% Pure Orange Juice - from grove to glass, never any water or sugar added.
