Florida Food Products Through the Decades

For more than 60 years, we’ve been a leading agribusiness specializing in fruit and vegetable ingredients for a number of industries. Here are a few places we’ve been during that journey:

1954

Founded by Alexander “Jerry” Brown, Florida Food Products first specialized in orange juice concentrate. The business grew rapidly with capabilities soon extending into citrus pellet and pulp manufacturing and orange oil production.

1960s

Expanding on our foundation in orange juice production, we pioneered the process of carbonated beverage canning.

1970s

Growth continued at a rapid pace with the opening of seven plant locations on the eastern seaboard.

1980s

As the result of back-to-back winter freezes that destroyed the regional supply of oranges, we shifted our focus to other fruits and vegetables. We became a leader in supplying aloe vera concentrates and freeze dried powders worldwide. Through extensive R&D efforts, Florida Food Products pioneered the concentrating of vegetable juice concentrates for a variety of applications and industries.

1990s

The second generation of the family, Jerry and Tom, took over the business, and it was during this time that the facility was expanded to include an updated fruit and vegetable processing plant, modern vacuum drying facilities, and a well-equipped research and development center.

2000s

The company’s portfolio of products expanded to include natural solutions for flavor and color, texture, and clean label cure solutions for meat.

Today

With Kainos Capital’s acquisition of the business in 2016, we continue our mission of improving our raw material sourcing and production processes, while innovating in new product and process development, with the intent of delivering on-trend product solutions for our customers.

Our Mission

We strive to deliver nature’s finest ingredients that enable our partners to provide the clean label, great tasting products today’s consumers are demanding.
