Community Involvement

Michigan Sugar Company’s facilities have been an essential part of the communities in which we operate. We believe that we can make the greatest impact on communities by supporting issues and causes that are important to our grower-owners and employees in their own neighborhoods.

Our community involvement program is based on the philosophy of operating regionally and giving back locally. We are focused on fostering and deepening our community partnerships because we know they are critical to our future. These relationships ensure we grow responsibly and help us build stronger communities together.

Michigan Sugar Company is excited to sponsor local and regional events, provide scholarships that assist those wishing to further their education, and crown a young woman as the Sugar Queen each year.
