In 1942, the Florida Citrus Commission hired three researchers to develop a product that would benefit the Florida citrus industry. Three years later in a small U.S. Department of Agriculture laboratory in Winter Haven, Florida, 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. All three men were inducted together into the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1986 for their contributions to the Citrus Industry.
