JBT is participating in this month’s Florida Citrus Industry Annual Conference to show the company’s ongoing support for the sector at what continues to be a challenging time for citrus growers in the Sunshine State.
An event which draws together producers, packers and processors, the Florida Citrus Mutual annual gathering is being held at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point, Bonita Springs from June 13-15. In addition to educational sessions, the conference will feature an update on research into the ongoing threat posed by citrus greening to Florida’s citrus groves, plus a grower panel on current challenges faced by the industry.
JBT’s Global Product Line Director for Fruit & Vegetable Processing, Michael Mas, said JBT will be present primarily to show for an industry of which it continues to be an active participant. “This is about JBT supporting the Florida citrus industry, which we have been a member of for over 80 years,” he added.
