Florida Crystals - Our Story
Florida Crystals Corporation is a privately owned and diversified agriculture, consumer products, real estate and energy company.
Florida Crystals is a leading sugar producer and the United States' first fully integrated cane sugar company, guiding our sugar from the field to the table. Florida Crystals owns 155,000 acres of land in Palm Beach County, operates two sugar mills, a sugar refinery, a rice mill, and our own packaging and distribution center in South Florida.
We are America's first and only domestic producer of certified organic sugar, grown and harvested in Florida. We also pioneered certified organic and natural rice production in the state.
Florida Crystals proudly owns and operates the largest biomass power plant in North America, which produces eco-friendly energy that powers our operations and tens of thousands of homes.
Florida Crystals is headquartered in Palm Beach County, Florida.
The origins of Florida Crystals trace back five generations, when the Fanjul family began sugar farming and production in Cuba in the 1850s. After the communist takeover of Cuba, Alfonso Fanjul led the effort to reestablish the business in the rich and fertile soils of South Florida in 1960. Throughout the following decades, under the leadership of Alfonso "Alfy" Fanjul and Jose "Pepe" Fanjul, the company has grown to be one of the largest, most innovative and successful agriculture companies in the world.
Today, along with our subsidiaries and affiliates, we produce more than four million tons of sugar each year with operations in Florida, California, Louisiana, New York, Maryland, Canada and Mexico. Our products are sold under the Domino®, C&H®, Florida Crystals®, Redpath® and Jack Frost® brands.
