The 12-ounce Orange Sipper Cup has a green screw-top lid with a sturdy plastic straw for sipping and may be custom imprinted with a minimum order, said Kelly Abercrombie, Citra Products CEO. In addition to adding a fun touch to tropically themed birthday parties or events, it is handy for outdoor activities like barbecues, boating, picnics, or a day at the beach where consumers want non-breakable, spill-resistant beverage containers. The cups also may be filled with fresh orange juice and sold with the chilled beverages, Abercrombie said.

The Orange Sipper Cup has a suggested retail price of $4.49 to $5.99 and is available 12 to a case. A master case count is 100. It can be name dropped with a minimum order of a master case and a $100 set-up fee. Pre-orders for the product will be taken at the McClain’s show, and the cup will be available in the fourth quarter, Abercrombie said.

About Citra Products of Florida:

Citra® Products of Florida, a U.S. producer of fruit eating kitchen housewares, traces its roots to 1910. Citrus grower Charles Schiller invented what originally was termed a citrus sucker, a wooden device that allowed juice to be sipped directly from the orange itself. Today made from plastic, the Citrus Sipper is a flagship product in the company’s line, which includes an array of fruit-eating products. In 2012, Citra Products was purchased by McClain’s Old Florida Gourmet, a regional distributor of shelf stable gourmet food, bulk and count candy, and Florida specialties and novelties. All Citra products are made in the U.S.A., and in keeping with the company’s long tradition of partnering with nonprofit organizations, special education students have gained work training, job experience, and life skills by assembling the products.
