At American Crystal Sugar Company, we make food products for people, pets, and livestock. We’re proud that our customers rely on us for safe, consistent, reliable deliveries. American Crystal Sugar Company utilizes the most stringent quality-assurance measures, and the quality of each product is the result of a careful, deliberate action plan that is fully supported by every employee.
While management takes the ultimate responsibility for American Crystal’s quality, service, and productivity, each employee can take credit for his or her contribution to our success and is responsible for the implementation of quality in their particular area.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
Passed in 2011, the Food Safety Modernization Act’s main objective is to update the current FDA rules to ensure the United States food supply is safe by changing the focus from only responding to food contamination issues to preventing them from occurring. The prevention of potential food safety issues during the production of American Crystal Sugar Company products has always been our #1 priority. Our customers deserve nothing less.
Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
American Crystal Sugar Company receives annual certification through the Safe, Quality Foods (SQF) program that meets the strict requirements of the GFSI. SQF audits require documented food safety policies that cover food production along the entire food chain, from farm to fork, to ensure confidence in the delivery of safe food to our customer.
American Crystal Sugar Company has put into place a variety of measures to ensure the supplies and services we source are from like-minded ethical companies and vendors. Our goal is to ensure our products and the products we use are responsibly produced with respect to labor and employment rules, pollution and environmental regulations, and other applicable and sustainable business practices.
