About $300 million.
Cranberry Stats in the United States
The total dollar value of U.S. cranberry production is approximately $292 million.
The majority, about 95 percent of this, is from processed cranberries. Processed cranberries are used for juice, sauces and cranberry products. The other 5% are fresh cranberries that you buy in those 12oz bags at the grocery store.
Within the U.S., the cranberry industry is dominated by just a few growers, in just a handful of states.
Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington; in that order.
All that money for a tiny little, red berry. Who knew? The mob may just move in on this industry if they find out. And decades later Netflix will have a special called, “The Cranberry King: Corruption and lies in the fields of Wisconsin.”
