Responsible Sourcing

LSR produces the only sugar that is 100% U.S. Non-GMO. We receive our raw sugar from 8 mills located within 100 miles of the refinery. Those 8 mills process sugar grown by approximately 800 farmers across Louisiana. In fact 75% of the raw sugar produced from cane grown in Louisiana is refined at LSR. As an integral member of the sugar belt, LSR relies on cooperation and transparency to ensure sustainability and quality standards are met. This also allows us to reduce our transportation footprint and ultimately, our carbon emissions.

All raw sugar refined at LSR is produced from cane grown within 110 mile radius of the refinery.
