Owned and operated by the Coca-Cola Company, Minute Maid is a product line of beverages. It was the first company to sell orange juice concentrate and was originally known for its orange juice and lemonade. As of 2014, however, the Minute Maid line extends to a wide variety of beverages and soft drinks, including Hi-C.
Minute Maid was originally incorporated as Florida Foods, Inc., in 1945. Instead of selling juice powder, the company sold frozen orange juice concentrate. The company officially changed its name to Minute Maid Corp. in October 1949. Created by marketers, the name was intended to suggest that Minute Maid juice was quick and easy to make. In 1960, Minute Maid Corp. was purchased by the Coca-Cola Company.
Popular Minute Maid products include Minute Maid Premium Orange Juice, Minute Maid Premium Lemonade, Minute Maid Premium Blends, Minute Maid Coolers, Minute Maid Light and Minute Maid Just 10.
