King Ranch cultivates about 12,500 acres of sugar cane in South Florida, and is the largest member of the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida.
Its sugarcane is ground and processed into raw sugar in Belle Glade, Florida. The cooperative ships the raw sugar to refineries owned by American Sugar Refining, Inc., of which the cooperative and King Ranch own a portion. American Sugar Refining, in turn, markets this product under the C&H and Domino brands.
After processing, King Ranch’s cane yields about 120,000 pounds of raw sugar, and about 3.5 million gallons of molasses. Through its participation in the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida, King Ranch stays highly attuned to the changes in the sugar market.
