Orange juice consumption at 15-year low

October 15, 2013

Orange juice consumption is at a 15-year low, according to new data published by the Florida Department of Citrus.

The Wall Street Journal says the decline in sales is due to growing tastes for more exotic juices and energy drinks.

High orange juice prices are also a factor. A gallon of orange juice costs nearly $2 more than it did 10 years ago due to a smaller citrus crop.
