Reiter Affiliated Companies Announces New Partnership

Berry Grower Announces Partnership with Guayabito Farms in Ventura County

November 18, 2019 – (Oxnard, California) – Reiter Affiliated Companies (RAC), the largest fresh multi-berry producer, announces a new partnership with Guayabito Farms. The Candelario family in Ventura County will lead the operations of Guayabito Farms.

The partnership RAC formerly had with El Dorado will be closing, but the Candelario family will keep the same acre profile under a new partnership known as Guayabito Farms. The same staff will manage the operations, and the Candelario family are leading this business to continue their father’s legacy.

The family chose “Guayabito” as the company name in honor of their late father, Humberto Candelario, as this was the name of his beloved ranch in Mexico. Evelin Candelario and Anthony Bibian will be running the operations of the company. Cindy Candelario will be involved as well, while continuing with her current role as Food Safety Manager, Southern District at RAC.

As a family-owned farming company, RAC is dedicated to providing strong resources and support for the success of each of their valued partners. Through this new partnership, RAC looks forward to continue fostering their long-standing relationship with the Candelario family.
