Rossi, an Italian immigrant, it has grown to over 8,000 employees in 2004, and markets its products throughout the United States. It has been owned by PepsiCo, Inc. since 1998. Tropicana has entered a business deal with CSX (a train company) to haul their famous juice trains, a relationship in effect since 1971.
