Fruit World Company
Bianca Kaprielian and CJ Buxman established Fruit World Co. in 2017 to bring flavorful, high-quality fruit to customers and ensure that their families’ farming heritages would continue to thrive into future generations. Bianca, a fourth-generation farmer, and CJ, a third-generation farmer both grew up in Reedley, California and also share similar stories. Their parents encouraged them to go away to college and start careers they loved that was not as hard as farming, but they eventually felt the strong pull back to their agricultural roots.
After a certificate in Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems from UC Santa Cruz, Bianca started her career as a produce buyer for Veritable Vegetable, then Whole Foods Market. Around the same time, CJ decided working behind a desk was not for him, and he moved his family back to Reedley and planted his first citrus ranch (followed by grapes and apricots). Over many phone calls and with encouragement from their families, they started Fruit World Co. with the mission to produce the most flavorful fruit in California and connect with customers who share the same passion for quality and peak seasonality.
Fruit World Co. handles the fruit sales for Bianca and CJ’s family farms, in addition to working with a few select growers who share their values and vision.
