About Us


With 200+ employees, CREC is also home to the scientific research staff of the Florida Department of Citrus (FDOC). Facilities also include 600+ acres of groves, greenhouses, a fresh fruit packinghouse, a juice processing pilot plant and more than 40 laboratories.

In 1982, financial contributions from the citrus industry made possible the construction of Ben Hill Griffin, Jr. Citrus Hall, a conference facility that includes meeting rooms, a teaching laboratory, an electron microscopy facility and the largest citrus library in the world.
