What We Do
U.S. Sugar is actively engaged in community outreach to strengthen and support our employees and our neighbors. Our employees contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually to civic, social and educational causes, and U.S. Sugar donates generously to local events, organizations, schools, sports teams and social programs. Our charitable work makes a significant difference in the lives of those around us.
U.S. Sugar is a farming company that was founded and grew up in Florida. We are now one of the largest agribusiness employers in the Everglades region. We offer good jobs with great benefits to 2,500 employees with varied skills and educational backgrounds. Included are high- skilled and high-wage jobs in high-tech, automated environments. As we continue to grow, we will create new jobs that provide secure employment to our neighbors.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
As Florida farmers, it is our mission to provide safe, locally grown food to families across America. Closer to home, with our recent vegetable harvests the people of U.S. Sugar were able to reach deeply into the communities we love by donating nearly 120,000 servings of nutritious green beans and 500,000 ears of sweet corn to deserving churches, healthcare providers, food banks and families across South Florida.
