Sunny Delight; marketed as SunnyD in some regions is a popular orange-flavored drink developed by Doric Foods of Mount Dora, Florida in 1963. It grew so popular that additional plants were built in California and Ohio in 1974 and 1978, respectively. In 1983, Sundor Brands bought out Doric Foods; Sundor Brands was then purchased by Procter & Gamble in 1989. The drink produced an estimated $450 million in revenue for Procter & Gamble in 2004. In 2005, Sunny Delight was spun off into the independent Sunny Delight Beverages Company (SDBC). The beverage is also distributed by Dr Pepper/Seven Up, Inc. (DPSU). In Canada, the drink is manufactured and distributed by Saputo. The beverage was launched in the United Kingdom in Spring 1998 with a 10 million promotional campaign, and became the third biggest selling drink in the UK, behind Coca-Cola and Pepsi.
