Pure sweetness comes from homegrown organic sugarcane – that’s Florida Crystals®
In 1995, Florida Crystals® planted the very first organic sugarcane grown in the U.S. Today, ours are still the only farms growing organic sugarcane here. Our plants are strong, sweet and not sprayed with pesticides or herbicides.
To grow organic sugarcane, we specifically plant a variety that’s fast-growing. Its leaves quickly provide a canopy to shade the soil, and block the sunlight from troublesome weeds that can grow below. We create habitats for wild barn owls to naturally free our farms of pests. Plus, our organic approach to farming means we’re careful to preserve our soil, rotating our crops with rice to provide food for local families and to store excess water from summer rains, all without the need for additional fertilizers.
As people in the U.S. continue to look for better options, we’ve doubled our organic farmland, cultivating it to grow delicious sugarcane that’s Non-GMO Project Verified, USDA Organic, Certified Kosher and vegan as well. And, as tastes and priorities continue to evolve, you can trust Florida Crystals® will continue to push the world of organic farming further into the future.
