Based in Sugar Land, Texas, Wholesome Sweeteners is a young company with generations of experience and expertise behind it. In addition to bringing the best organic natural, unrefined sweeteners to the North American market, Wholesome pioneered the certification process for Fair Trade CertifiedTM sugar and honey. Today, Wholesome Sweeteners is the category leader in Fair Trade Certified, organic and natural sugars, syrups, nectars and honeys produced from natures best resources.
The company is a joint venture between Edward Billington and Son, Europes leading importer of natural and organic unrefined sugars, and Imperial Sugar Incorporated, the largest US sugar company.
Billingtons is a diverse, international foods and agriculture group. It is one of Britains largest, privately owned family businesses, recognized for quality, service and innovation. Established in 1858, it has nearly 150 years of knowledge and experience in organic and all-natural farming and extensive expertise in sourcing the finest quality sugars across the globe. In 1992, Billingtons was the first company in the world to bring a certified organic sugar to market.
The Imperial Sugar Company is the one of the oldest continuously operating companies in the United States, tracing its roots back to 1843 when the first sugar mill was commissioned (in what later became the city of Sugar Land) by one of the original 100 families that Stephen F. Austin brought to settle Texas. The Imperial Sugar Company sells several of the best-known brands in the US and is a major supplier to the mass retail, food ingredient and food service markets.
The partnership was formed after the successful test marketing of Billingtons Natural Sugars in the Texas retail market. The venture now encompasses all the Fair Trade Certified, organic and natural sugar assets of both companies in North America and aims to be the leading supplier of these products to the US retail and food manufacturing markets.
