The Pioneer Sugar brand is owned by Michigan Sugar Company, which has been Making Life Sweeter since 1906. Pure, all-natural Pioneer Sugar begins inside the sugarbeets that are planted, cared for, and harvested each year by Michigan Sugar Company’s nearly 900 grower-owners. Each spring, these farm families plant about 160,000 acres of sugarbeets in 20 Michigan counties, as well as Ontario, Canada. The beets are harvested in the fall and the sugar is extracted from the beets at Michigan Sugar Company’s factories in Bay City, Caro, Croswell, and Sebewaing. More than 1.1 billion pounds of sugar, made by Mother Nature, is extracted, packaged, and sold each year.
