Nearly one-fourth of domestically consumed orange juice in the U.S. is imported

Orange juice represents only a small portion of the fruit and tree nut imports that the United States consumes every year, but imports represented roughly one-quarter of the orange juice the Nation consumed domestically during the 2010-11 marketing year. The leading source of imported orange juice was Brazil, providing nearly 12 percent of U.S. consumption, while nearly 9 percent of domestically consumed orange juice came from Mexico. The data for this chart come from USDA, Economic Research Service, Fruit and Tree Nut Yearbook data, 2011; and U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Census Bureau.
