Homegrown with love
Florida Crystals® is the only organic raw cane sugar grown in the U.S., and there’s a reason for that. Organic farming is meticulous, strict, regulated and time consuming. It takes 3 years for farmland to be certified as USDA Organic, and organic farming costs more than conventional farming to produce the same amount of crops. Simply put, it’s more difficult and more expensive. But, cheap and easy isn’t what Florida Crystals is about. So, we took the hardest path to home grow the only organic raw cane sugar in the country.
Sugar that’s grown right here, the right way.
We’re proud that each of our sugar products are grown on American land passionately cultivated by our farmers who know it best. And, we’re equally proud that when you buy a Florida Crystals® product, you know where and how it was grown. Every stalk of sugarcane that we mill to make our sugars is cultivated right here.
We own all of our farms, and our farmers are committed to operating them sustainably, responsibly and with the utmost respect for the environment. This not only makes us more efficient and eco-friendly but also produces better sugar as well.
We believe, like in wine, the terroir and climate in which sugarcane is grown shapes its character. So, we carefully optimize the nutrients in our soil, apply just the right amount of water and ensure that the tropical Florida weather where we farm will continue to provide the consistently unique raw cane sugars your recipes deserve.
