The movie is very nicely produced and takes you right through the whole process from growing the fruit all the way to the juice in your local supermarket.

This is a must see. Really cool how they explain how we process our oranges and juice. It is just a short little exhibit but really worth the while

Stopped off for a visit as in the area. They don't do tours of the plant opposite, but as said by others there's a video (we got to see it all by ourselves as the place wasn't busy) that covers the whole story of the growers who own the land, the trees and the company. There are a few videos... More
