Citra Products of Florida

Citra® Products of Florida, a U.S. producer of fruit eating kitchen housewares, traces its roots to 1910. Citrus grower Charles Schiller invented what originally was termed a citrus sucker, a wooden device that allowed juice to be sipped directly from the orange itself. That early device has evolved into the Citra Citrus Sipper and was launched into prominence at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933-1934. Today made from plastic, the Citrus Sipper is a flagship product in the company’s line, which also includes an array of citrus spoons and knives, grapefruit corer, strawberry huller, citrus peelers, mini juicer, and the O.J. Squeater, another device allowing juice to be sipped directly from oranges.

In 2012, the principals of McClain’s Old Florida Gourmet purchased Citra Products from Nan Norman, Charles Schiller’s granddaughter, and her family. Citra, which Schiller dubbed “the useful souvenir” is a natural fit for McClain’s, a regional distributor of shelf stable gourmet food, bulk and count candy, and Florida specialties and novelties. Today, Citra Products are available throughout the Southeast in specialty markets, grove stores, beach stores, and amusement parks.

All Citra products are made in the U.S.A., and in keeping with the company’s long tradition of partnering with nonprofit organizations, special education students in Florida high schools have gained work training, job experience, and life skills by assembling Citra products. The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation, which serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, also has relied on Citra for job skills development.
