About the Coalition

About the Coalition for Sugar Reform

The Coalition for Sugar Reform is a broad-based group of food and beverage manufacturers, trade associations, environmental advocates, taxpayer watchdog organizations, responsible government advocates, think tanks and other organizations.

Our group is led by the National Confectioners Association and the Sweetener Users Association, which count among their membership the hundreds of American companies that use sugar as an ingredient in the products they make.

Our Mission

We’re advocating for reform of the U.S. sugar program, because it hurts small, family-owned businesses that are the backbone of our economy and key drivers of growth. The sugar program is a complicated tangle of price supports, market allotments, import quotas, and government-guaranteed loans – and it has been protected by special interest since the great depression!
