Our Mission

Alberta Sugar Beet Growers is a farmer organization striving to create an Alberta sugar beet industry that is vibrant, expanding, profitable and producer-driven. We exist to:

  • provide leadership and representation for producers on provincial, national and international policy issues;

  • promote our industry through effective partnering with government, business and producers;

  • provide a united voice for producers in dealings with the processor; and

  • guide research to enhance the competitiveness of the industry.

Located in Taber, we represent over 200 sugar beet producers in southern Alberta who provide the only domestic source of sugar in Canada.
