U.S. Sugar is a farming company that grows sugarcane, citrus, and fresh vegetables. The company was founded in 1931 by a visionary leader who hailed from a long line of farmers. Since the beginning, our company's success has been rooted in traditional farming values and respect for the land.
Our local farmers provide nearly 10 percent of all sugar produced in the United States, 1.29 million orange trees, and half of Florida's sweet corn crop.
Our employees directly benefit from the success of our company through participation in an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP). They take pride in the role they play in feeding families across America. Their hard work, integrity and focus on quality and sustainability have made us an industry leader
Our investment in innovative technologies is making our farming operations even more sustainable. We also operate the most technologically advanced and fully integrated sugarcane processing facility in North America, which enables us to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively than other producers.
The Everglades Agricultural Area is home to an abundance of plants and animals. Our green energy initiative and innovative soil and water management practices help conserve our natural resources and the vibrant soil, water and air that sustain them and nurture our crops.
U.S. Sugar is actively engaged in community outreach to strengthen and support our employees and neighbors. We contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually to civic, social and educational causes in and around our Glades communities.
