About the Company: Florida Crystals began as a small sugarcane farming and milling company in Pahokee, Florida, where it was founded by the Fanjul family in 1960. The family’s more than century-long heritage in farming, dating back to 1850 in Cuba, inspired the ideals on which they would build their company: one that values its employees, is committed to giving back to its community and utilizes the most environmentally friendly farming practices to produce the foods that feed its neighbors.
