Processing of citrus juices
The citrus growing areas in the United States are located in the States of Florida, California, Texas and Arizona. The largest crop is harvested in Florida where over 90% of the oranges and approximately 55% of grapefruit are processed into juice products. Brazil’s crop is larger than Florida’s, where even larger percentages of oranges are processed for juice. Other citrus growing areas in the Western Hemisphere include Mexico, Central America, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and countries on the northern part of South America. The machinery used for the processing of citrus juices in these countries and in other regions, such as Spain, Italy, Israel and around the Mediterranean is quite similar.
