The new million-ton-per-year sugar refinery is expected to bring more than 500 construction jobs as well as re-new plant jobs in the Gramercy area.

The sugar refinery will be built, owned and operated by Louisiana Sugar Refining LLC, a joint venture among Sugar Growers and Refiners Inc., Cargill and Imperial Sugar Company. Sugar Growers and Refiners Inc. is a Louisiana cooperative representing eight sugar cane mills and more than 700 Louisiana sugar growers in Louisiana.
