LOUISVILLE, KY IMC Licensing, the nation’s leading full-service licensing agency specializing in consumer product brands, announced today that it has negotiated a new licensing agreement for Sunkist Growers, America’s oldest and largest cooperative citrus marketing company, to produce a new line of ice cream, sherbet and frozen dessert treats for all ages. The licensee is WillBe, LLC, doing business as Game On Foods, a licensee of frozen pizza, ice cream and frozen novelty products for grocery, convenience stores and foodservice accounts nationwide.

The complete line of Sunkist ice cream, sherbet and frozen novelties will launch during the first half of 2011 in North America. The line of frozen fruit treats is one that kids will love because of the kid-friendly taste and fun-to-eat form, and parents will love because they are made from all natural ingredients. These frozen fruit treats come in fruit bar form as well as in pint and quart varieties. Made with 100% fruit juice, fruit puree and fruit pieces, they are all natural, vegan, preservative-free, gluten-free and will not contain high-fructose corn syrup. The product line will include such flavors as orange, orange and cream, lemon-raspberry swirl, orange-mango, orange-passion fruit and lemon-raspberry.

According to Cara Bernosky, IMC Licensing President and Co-founder, “Sunkist is one of the most recognized and respected fruit brands in the world, known for its quality, fresh taste and natural goodness.
