The Florida Citrus Commission in 1942 hired three researchers to develop a product that would benefit the Florida citrus industry. Three years later, the young men – scientific Research Director Louis G. MacDowell and chemists Dr. Edwin L. Moore and Cedric D. Atkins – had perfected the method of producing the present form of frozen concentrated orange juice (FCOJ). The process sparked an explosion of growth in Florida citrus production while helping create the frozen food industry.
