Like most long-term beverage companies, Mission went through a variety of names and locations. The first products were offered by California Crushed Fruit from Los Angeles. After the initial success of Mission Orange in the beverage market, the Mission Dry Corporation was formed and then later became Mission of California, Incorporated of New Haven, Connecticut by the 1950s.
Mission Dry Orange was originally bottled in unique black bottles, as can be seen in the example above. Later clear ACL bottles with white lettering, sometimes with a black background, took the place of the black bottle.
Mission also bottled flavors, in the ACL bottles, with the cap identifying the flavor inside.
