Some Florida shippers see Europe as a major market, said Richard Kinney, president of the Lakeland-based Florida Citrus Packers Inc.
“All the fruit with 27 countries within the EU, there’s a lot of room for expansion there,” he said.
“Same thing with Japan. Japan is a big country. We have four or five big markets we ship into there. It’s a function of money, being able to get in there and being able to market, and Japan and Europe are the big markets.”
