Our Story

In the 1930′s, our founder pioneered the use of emulsion technology in the beverage industry. From the beginning, a strong foothold in food science established United Citrus as one of the first companies to offer quality cocktail flavorings at an affordable price.

Today, our product range and capabilities have expanded far beyond that initial breakthrough. We serve national restaurant chains, food service suppliers, food manufacturers, commercial bakers and even the U.S. government. Our customers enjoy comprehensive, customized, and cost-effective beverage technology solutions, no matter their size.

Quality & Safety

Our 40,000 square foot facility includes a laboratory, R&D facility, dry blended and liquid manufacturing capabilities, and a temperature-controlled warehouse.

A comprehensive Quality Control system oversees all of our operations. We’ve received consistent outstanding reports by third party auditors and we’re recognized for quality and safety through our compliance with a HAACP program.

Go Green and Save Green

United Citrus is committed to incorporating GREEN practices throughout our manufacturing processes. All of our packaging is flexible, using 75% less plastic than rigid counterparts. Other benefits of flexible packaging include:

  • Packaging weight is reduced by 70%, which means lower shipping costs each time the product moves.
  • Empty Pouches occupy up to 95% less space.
  • Flexible Pouches cost less.
  • Less weight and bulk in the recycle bin or dumpster at every juncture translates to savings.

Concentrating our liquid products is done whenever possible, reducing shipping weight up to 12%.

Dry crystal products don’t oxidize and deteriorate like their wet counterparts. They  begin oxidation only when mixed with fresh water, not at the time they are manufactured. This helps keep the taste fresh and free of added preservatives.
