Royal Citrus Growers was started by growing and selling Citrus seedlings to the public. Part of the money realized was reinvested and the other part was used to sponsor the education of the producer. At a point sales of the seedlings went down since not many farmers around the area were into an orange plantation. So this encouraged the owner to get a farmland to cultivate the actual plantation. This was started on 17th October 2005. Royal Citrus Growers is now moving further to processing. To help cut down post-harvest losses and also help farmers in the catchment area to buy their fruits for processing. This will help them to have a ready market for their produce.
