Savannah Foods & Industries Inc was incorporated in Delaware on February 19, 1969, as the successor to Savannah Sugar Refining Corporation, which was originally incorporated in New York in 1916. In 1997 Savannah Foods & Industries, Inc., headquartered in Savannah, Georgia, the second largest sugar refiner in the industry, was acquired by Imperial Sugar Company thus becoming the largest processor and refiner of sugar in the United States. In the mid-1800's, farmers produced sugar by using horse-powered mills to grind area-grown sugar cane; they cooked the cane juice in open-air boiling pans. Sugar continues to be produced at this same site; however, today the site is known as the thriving city of Sugar Land, Texas. Savannah Foods & Industries, Inc. had acquired Michigan Sugar, a beet sugar producer in Saginaw, Michigan in 1984, Great Lakes Sugar, in 1985 and Colonial Sugar Refinery located in Gramercy, Louisiana in 1986. The acquisition of Savannah Foods made Imperial Holly the first truly national sugar refiner and marketer in the country. With production and distribution facilities throughout the United States, Imperial Holly owns five of the country's leading consumer sugar brands: Imperial®, Dixie Crystals®, Pioneer®, Holly® and Spreckels®. Additionally, Imperial Holly supplies sugar and sweetener products to industrial food manufacturers coast to coast.
