We’re taking the next step in the advancement of our Ethical Sourcing Program working towards having all of our raw sugar being Sustainably Sourced and Ethically Grown – for reference, please review our Ethical Sourcing Policy.
To us, Sustainably Sourced and Ethically Grown means that either all the raw sugar used to craft our products come from sugar mills that are certified against an internationally recognized standard, as outlined here. Or, when trade and agriculture policies limit our access to a full volume of certified sugar, it is purchased from suppliers who have been through our rigorous Ethical Sourcing Program.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility Program
Our Corporate Social Responsibility Program is an ongoing commitment to continuous assessment of our supply chain.

We’re updating Redpath packaging with a new icon to reflect our Sustainably Sourced and Ethically Grown commitment. Look for the new green icon on our packaging.
Inside the package, nothing has changed. All of our sugars still taste and function the same way. It’s the same great sugar!
“Sustainably Sourced” and “Ethically Grown” for Redpath means that our raw cane sugar comes from suppliers who:
Respect and work towards the highest environmental, social, and governance standards
- Our goal is to eventually source 100% of the raw cane sugar we use from sugar mills certified against an internationally recognized corporate social responsibility standard as further described in our Sustainability Report.
- When trade and agriculture policies limit Redpath’s access to a full volume of certified raw cane sugar, then raw cane sugar is purchased from suppliers who have been through Redpath’s rigorous Ethical Sourcing Program.
