Our Company

American Crystal Sugar Company Is a Grower‐Owned Cooperative.

Everything We Do Benefits Our Growers and Our Communities.

At American Crystal Sugar Company, growers who grow and harvest the sugarbeets also own the company and the factories that make our products. Through our tightly integrated business model, we pull together, unlock our potential, and share in the results.

Through its sugarbeet processing facilities, American Crystal Sugar Company processes sugarbeets into all‐natural sugar; agri‐products such as molasses; sugarbeet pulp; and other byproducts of the molasses desugarization process, like betaine and concentrated separated byproduct (CSB).

We're proud to be an economic engine for our communities. We employ approximately 1,400 full-time employees and about 900 hourly seasonal workers and many more contracted third-party workers.
