In 1983, Sundor Brands bought out Doric Foods; Sundor brands was then purchased by Procter & Gamble in 1989. In 2005, Sunny Delight was spun off into the independent Sunny Delight Beverages Company.

It was launched in 1998 in the United Kingdom with a £10 million promotional campaign, and became the third biggest selling drink in the UK, behind Coca-Cola and Pepsi. It was marketed as a healthy alternative to soft drinks, but this claim was brought in question. Although many consumers may experience visual and olfactory perceptions of the drink as a type of orange juice, the products itself states that it contains only 5% juice. There were a series of negative press reports, an investigation by the Food Commission, coinciding with the story of a girl who went orange after drinking too much Sunny Delight. Sales had halved by 2001, and the drink was redesigned and re-launched in 2002 as 'Sunny D'. 1998 (MCMXCVIII) is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

Recently (Mid-2005) some confusion has come about whether or not Sunny D needs to be constantly refrigerated. This is because Sunny D now maintains two product lines, the traditional line, which always required constant chilling, and the shelf-stable variety. Both ultimately need to be chilled at some point before consumption. The difference is that the shelf-stable variety can be placed among more similar brands and away from refrigerated compartments. This increases visibility and is more convenient for the grocer to store. Ultimately, however, to prevent spoilage both the shelf-stable and chilled line of drinks must eventually be refrigerated. This property is not unique to Sunny D drinks, but rather all high sugar drinks, including pure orange juice, which will spoil if left unchilled for a period of time.
