Mulberry is a city located in Polk County within the Central Florida Highlands area of the Atlantic coastal plain The first settlers can be traced back to the 1840s, when the lands were sparsely settled and the logging industry was king It was not until February 1901 that Mulberry became officially incorporated The origin of the city’s name is based on a Mulberry tree located in the center point of the community by the railroad tracks The tree served as a town meeting place in Mulberry’s early days

In 1886, Florida’s third largest industry was uncovered The discovery of phosphate rock in the Peace River drove Mulberry’s economy and stabilized the community; nearly all of the city’s industry became powered by the mining of phosphate Thanks to this naturally occurring element, many businesses arose over the years such as International Mineral and Chemical Company, Mobil Chemical, and Prairie Pebble Phosphate Company Mines operated in Mulberry include Agrico Mine, Armour Mine, Bonnie Mine, Brewster Mine, Gardinier Mine, and Grace Mines The Mulberry mines supply 80% of the nation’s demand and one third of the world’s demand for the essential fertilizer ingredient At present, Mulberry is home to Mosaic (formerly IMC Corporation), the top phosphate producer in the world, and Master Containers Inc., the largest foam cup and container plant in Florida.
