Welcome to the Canadian Sugar Institute
The Canadian Sugar Institute
(CSI) is the national, non-profit association representing Canadian sugar
manufacturers on nutrition and international trade affairs. The Institute
provides a science-based Nutrition Information Service and seeks fair
treatment on international trade policies and disputes.
The Institute was incorporated in 1966 to support the industry in the areas of government relations, education, research and information dissemination. These activities are distinct from the competitive activities of each member company, such as product-specific sales, marketing and promotion.
CSI is funded by Canadian producers of refined cane and beet sugar. CSI member companies include Lantic Inc. (Lantic Sugar and Rogers Sugar) and Redpath Sugar Ltd.
The Institute is directed by an elected Board of Directors, including
the CSI President and representatives from each of the CSI member companies.
The staff manage the routine affairs
of the Institute and regularly report to the Board.
