John M. Fox, 1983 Inductee

John M. Fox is a pioneer in the development of frozen concentrated orange juice, as his process proved a viable means of salvaging freeze-damaged fruit that would otherwise have been written off as a total loss. As a result, citrus growers saved millions of dollars by diverting the fruit scheduled for fresh fruit markets into the concentrate plants. Expert observers concede that without the development of frozen concentrated orange juice, Florida’s citrus industry would never have grown from the 55-million box crops of Jack Fox’s time to crops in the neighborhood of 250-million boxes.
