Orange Juice Doom! Florida Crop Worst since 1945.

With the Sunshine State now set to produce its smallest crop since 1945, it is feared thousands of Brits may be forced to pay more of their favourite breakfast drink.
Frozen orange concentrate’s price now costs £1,600 a tonne after the vicious storm ripped through the southern US state in September.
Rabobank beverage analyst Andres Padilla said: “The fact Florida is having such a problem with production and Brazil will probably have a smaller crop means supply will probably decline faster than demand, so prices will trend higher.”
Hurricane Irma caused havoc as it traveled through Florida with winds reaching 100 miles per hour.
More than 75 people died and at least $100billion (£74billion) of damage is expected to have been done.
More than 1.5 million people in South Florida were left without power.
