Full of hot water! Ocean Spray claims first with Pennsylvania site
Ocean Spray claims its new 300,000ft² beverage facility in Pennsylvania – which will produce 40% of its North American cranberry juice volumes, is the continent’s first to be powered by hot water.

The brand broke ground on the 44-acre site at Upper Macungie in April 2012, and the facility will produce 30m+ liters of Ocean Spray drinks each year; it created 180 full-time jobs and began operating in January.

Drinks produced on site range from 100% cranberry juice to blends made with blueberry, grapefruit, pomegranate and other juices, for packaging in both PET bottles and cartons.

Pennsylvania department of community and economic development secretary, Alan Walker, said of the agricultural co-operative's move: “It is impressive that 40% of Ocean Spray’s North American volume will be bottled right here in Pennsylvania.”
