Who We Are

Who We Are

The Sweetener Users Association (SUA) represents American food and beverage manufacturers who use sugar to make the products U.S. consumers know and love – from sweet treats to everyday staples like bread, pasta sauce, yogurt and peanut butter.

SUA members employ hundreds of thousands of Americans across the United States – from bakers and confectioners to food scientists and factory workers.

SUA advocates for legislative and regulatory reforms that will make U.S. sugar policy more market-oriented, both domestically and internationally, so that consumers aren’t forced to pay high prices that result from government subsidies.

SUA believes in less government intrusion into the marketplace and in sugar and trade policies that protect American workers, manufacturers and consumers.
