“We are excited to join a first-rate organization like United Sugars,” said Michael Greear, president and chief executive officer of Wyoming Sugar Co. “Their emphasis on developing long-term relationships and commitment to innovation and efficiency is a great fit with Wyoming Sugar Co.”

Wyoming Sugar is cooperatively owned by growers in Washakie, Big Horn and Fremont counties of Wyoming and operates one beet sugar factory in Worland that has bulk sugar capacity and value-added 50-lb and super-sacking lines. The company has processed sugar beets from the Southern Bighorn Basin and Freemont country for more than 100 years.

“Wyoming Sugar will enhance United Sugars’ ability to serve our customers’ sugar supply needs and open new geographies enhancing United Sugars’ position as a national supplier,” said Dennis Butenhoff, chairman of United Sugars. United Sugars said the addition of Wyoming Sugar will allow United Sugars to open additional markets in the West.

United Sugars is the largest seller of sugar to industrial customers in the United States, marketing sugar to major food and beverage manufacturers and food retailers nationwide through an extensive network of production and distribution facilities. It is a cooperative association of American Crystal Sugar Co. (beet sugar), Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative (beet sugar), United States Sugar Corp. (cane sugar in Clewiston, Fla.) and now the Wyoming Sugar Co. (beet sugar).
