Whether you live in one of the many communities dependent on sugar production, are a taxpayer saving scarce federal dollars or a grocery shopper enjoying a safe and affordable sugar supply, you’re benefiting from America’s sugar producers.
- America’s sugar farmers, sugar processors, and sugar refiners create 142,000 jobs and generate nearly $20 billion a year for the U.S. economy.
- America’s sugar is produced in 18 states so we don’t have to depend on unreliable foreign countries for this vital ingredient.
- Best of all, this success story costs taxpayers very little because sugar producers don’t receive government subsidy checks.
