FCOJ Facts

Brazil is the top global supplier of orange juice, but Florida is the leader in U.S. production. Citrus farmers in Florida rely heavily on the juice industry as approximately 90% of their crop is produced for all forms of juice. As global demand for orange juice increases, so has the strong supply growth from the EU, China and Mexico.

There are three forms of juice not squeezed directly at the point of consumption that is commonly marketed:

  • Frozen Concentrate – diluted with water after purchase
  • Reconstituted Liquid – concentrated and then diluted with water before purchase
  • Not From Concentrate (NFC) – single strength and unconcentrated
