American Crystal Sugar Company
American Crystal Sugar Company is a world-class agricultural cooperative specializing in the production of sugar and related agri-products. American Crystal is owned by nearly 2,900 shareholders who raise approximately 425,000 acres of sugarbeets in the Red River Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota. Additional acreas are contracted in eastern Montana and western North Dakota. As the largest beet sugar producer in the United States, the company utilizes innovative farming practices, low-cost production methods and sales and marketing leadership to produce and sell about 18 percent of America's finest quality sugar.
American Crystal operates sugar factories in Crookston, East Grand Forks and Moorhead, Minnesota; Drayton and Hillsboro, North Dakota; and in Sidney, Montana under the name Sidney Sugars Incorporated. The company's technical services center and corporate headquarters are also located in Moorhead.
Located in Edina, Minnesota, United Sugars Corporation markets American Crystal's sugar to retail and industrial customers throughout the nation. Midwest Agri-Commodities Company, based in San Rafael, California, globally markets American Crystal's agri-products such as sugarbeet pulp and molasses, CSB and betaine.
At the core of American Crystal is the experience and aptitude of a workforce that extends beyond the Company. Guided by their insights and resourcefulness, we continue to find new ways to persevere and triumph through substantial challenges and significant opportunities.
Transforming a raw vegetable such as sugarbeets into pure natural sugar takes more than plants and machines; it takes roll-up-the shirt-sleeve, fresh thinking problem solvers. It takes the kind of work that goes on every day at American Crystal.
