WASHINGTON — National Sugar Marketing L.L.C. (N.S.M.) announced on March 4 the addition of Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative (S.M.B.S.C.) as its newest member .
S.M.B.S.C., based in Renville, Minn., is a grower cooperative with processing plants in Brawley, Calif., and Renville, and produces about 600,000 tons of refined sugar annually.
“By joining N.S.M., Southern Minnesota will deliver their refined sugar to customers with the highest efficiency and the lowest cost to serve,” said Bill Smith, president and chief executive officer of N.S.M. “Adding S.M.B.S.C. as a member strengthens N.S.M.’s ability to serve the nation’s sugar supply needs on a very competitive and cost effective basis. This addition enhances N.S.M.’s position as a national supplier and greatly improves our ability to reach new markets.”
