Jamaica Citrus Growers Limited

Jamaica Citrus Growers Limited was established as limited liability company on December 19, 1949 and has been engaged in the business of processing, packing and marketing of citrus products since 1951 and chilled beverages since 1962

OVERVIEW OF THE OPERATION
The company's factory and main offices are located on ten acres of land near the town of Bog Walk, St, Catherine that is approximately 25 miles northwest of Kingston along the main road from Kingston to Ocho Rios on the north coast of the island.
The Company was established to provide an outlet for Citrus farmers to sell their surplus fruit in the height of the citrus bearing season.
The fruit is processed in frozen concentrate citrus juices that are sold on the local and international markets and also used by the company in the manufacturing of its own chilled beverage products.
The capacity for processing citrus fruit is approximately 60,000 field boxes per week (a box of orange of Ortanique contain 90 pounds of fruit and a box of grapefruit 80 pounds of fruit).
This level of capacity is more than adequate to process the fruit that is likely to become available. Due to the seasonal nature of citrus, processing is normally done during November to May of each year.
The major aspect of JCG Ltd's business operations is the conversion of raw material into saleable products, which includes chilled orange juice and eight other natural and artificial fruit flavored drinks which are sold under the Juciful brand name.
