Tropicana Products, Inc. to Lay Off Workers at Bradenton Facility

Tropicana Products, Inc. will lay off about a dozen workers at its Bradenton facility by the end of the month for cost savings. The juice giant has seen its sales squeezed by the recession as consumers turn to more value-oriented brands, a trend that has Tropicana unveiling new-look bottles and marketing efforts to keep pace. Division managers met with the 1,200 some workers in groups at the Bradenton plant to discuss the cuts, leaving the possibility open for more to come later this year. It remains unclear if the Tropicana cuts are a part of PepsiCo's broader cost-savings plan. The layoffs confirmed are not seasonal.

Tropicana Products, Inc. introduced an elegantly-designed 89-ounce container for its Tropicana Pure Premium 100% pure Florida orange juice with no added sugar, water or preservatives. This sleek, first-of-its kind package is ideal for any breakfast or brunch occasion because it offers orange juice lovers nutritional power from one of Mother Nature's original super fruits with more convenience, easier handling and pouring, style and recyclability all in a family-size pitcher. This is the first clear-handle design in the chilled juice category that is 100% recyclable. Made from lightweight PET plastic, the bottle can be recycled in curbside programs nationwide or via PepsiCo Dream Machines that are available in public locations across the country. Its sturdy, easy-to-grip handle and proprietary, easy-to-open flip top are designed to provide consumers a perfect pour every time. Plus, the clear container fits nicely in the refrigerator and offers an at-a-glance view, so it's easy to see how much juice is left. At about 50% per 8-ounce glass, Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice has no added sugar and provides: Two fruit servings; a day's supply of vitamin C to help support a healthy immune system; as much potassium as a medium banana, which plays an important role in heart health; a natural source of the B-vitamin folate, which helps with cell development (especially important for pregnant women); and a good source of thiamin, which is essential in energy metabolism, and plays an important role in nerve and muscle function. The new 89-ounce bottle is available at grocery stores nationwide, and the suggested retail price is $6.29.
