The Amalgamated Sugar Company LLC produces sugar from sugarbeets grown by the 750 plus members of our parent cooperative, Snake River Sugar Company. We trace our roots to Ogden, Utah, in 1897, and are now headquartered in Boise, Idaho. Amalgamated Sugar is the second largest manufacturer of sugar from sugarbeets in the United States, and sells sugar across the country through our national sales company, National Sugar Marketing LLC.

Our Work

Grower/Owners

Grower/Owners

Over 750 grower/members raise sugarbeets on 180,000 acres of prime irrigated land, producing 7,000,000 tons of sugarbeets annually. Sugarbeets are planted in the spring, harvested in the fall, and contain approximately 17.50% sugar by weight. Our sugarbeets are processed during the fall and winter at three sugarbeet factories.

Science in Agriculture

Amalgamated Sugar works closely with our growers to improve sugarbeet crops produced through research, striving for data-driven excellence. We conduct studies to improve sugarbeet variety selection, agronomic practices, and integrated pest management. Our goal is to help our growers become more efficient and sustainable while providing quality products.

Sugarbeet factories are large scale, heavy industrial facilities. Operating 24/7, the factories process sugarbeets during the fall and winter, produce sugar 11 months per year, and operate molasses separators year-round. Sugarbeets are processed into both refined sugar and animal feed products.
