Geoff Riley

29th November 2018

Business Insider visits a cranberry farm to explore how over 200 billion cranberries are harvested each year. Ocean Spray Cranberry farms are a part of a cooperative established in 1933 that includes the US, Canada, and Chile. (A great example of comparative advantage in action!) Each year, Ocean Spray facilities produce about 88 million cans of cranberry sauce and 223 million bottles of cranberry juice.
