Fiberstar utilizes citrus waste to manufacture natural, healthy food ingredients using their proprietary, patented-process. The facility is located in Hendry County, a rural area that consistently has one of the highest unemployment rates in FL. Fiberstar’s products are utilized in food production to improve health, quality and cost savings. The products are produced from citrus-based waste generated during orange juice manufacturing. Fiberstar’s purchase of the waste provides a valuable additional revenue stream for the local citrus industry, a major employer in the region, that has suffered due to a bacterial disease affecting Florida’s citrus trees.
