About the Florida Department of Citrus

The Florida Department of Citrus (FDOC) is an executive agency of the Florida government charged with the marketing, research and regulation of the Florida citrus industry. Its mission is to maximize demand for Florida citrus products in order to ensure the sustainability and economic well-being of the Florida citrus grower, the citrus industry and the State of Florida. FDOC activities are funded by a tax paid by citrus growers on each box of citrus that moves through commercial channels.

The FDOC also has extensive regulatory responsibilities, covering every aspect of the industry, including research, production, fertilizing, maturity standards, harvesting, licensing, transportation, labeling, packing and processing.

The FDOC is governed by the Florida Citrus Commission, a nine-member board appointed by the Governor of Florida to represent citrus growers, processors and packers.
