Paradise Fruit Company was incorporated in 1961 as part of Canaveral Utilities and Development Co., a land development
operation on the east coast of Florida. The name "Paradise", a label used by a company that had been in the 'glace'
(candied) fruit business since the end of WW2, was acquired by Canaveral during the year of incorporation. After
several acquisitions and mergers with similar businesses, 'glace' fruit became the major segment of the company's
business. In 1965, the name was changed to Paradise Fruit Company, Inc. During those years, there were a number of
relatively small operations manufacturing candied fruit, primarily for sale to commercial bakers. The management of
Paradise anticipated that there was a great potential for direct sales to homemakers through supermarkets. Over a period
of several years, Paradise developed the now familiar transparent, reusable plastic containers found in almost every
supermarket during the holiday season. In order to become more immediately responsive to its customers needs, the
company invested in a facility to manufacture all of its packaging. This, combined with large inventories, enabled
almost overnight filling and shipping of orders. During the same period, the company acquired, merged with, or was
licensed by a number of competitors to become the leading marketer of 'glace' fruit products under labels that have been
trusted and asked for by customers for generations. Given the increasing diversification, the name of the company was
changed to Paradise, Inc. in 1993. Paradise remains an innovator in 'glace' fruit marketing, introducing in 2003 a new
package design that incorporates recipes and a cash-redeemable coupon.
