Learn To Grow Sugar

SHARE THIS PAGE

In May 2016, Hershey began a new partnership with the Sugar Industry Research and Development Institute (SIRDI) to expand our Learn to Grow sustainable farming program to sugar suppliers in northern Belize.

The SIRDI Farmer Field School is an expansion of our sucessful Learn to Grow program, initiated four years ago to provide West African cocoa farmers the opportunity to improve productivity, increase personal income and gain improvements for their communities. Similarly, this sugar program will train farmers in sustainable agriculture practices to responsibly grow and harvest sugar cane. 

For more on sugar sourcing, please see Hershey’s Sustainable Sugar Sourcing Policy.
