Premium quality food products.

Making you look good, as we do good.

Crosby's production line

As one of Canada’s most trusted food companies, the Crosby Molasses Company prides itself on providing quality foods to customers. Part of our quality promise means delivering good food that our customers can feel good about.

At Crosby, we’re committed to reducing our impact on the environment through environmentally responsible and sustainable business practices. We comply with all laws and regulations applicable to our business, and continually improve our environmental management systems to ensure we’re meeting or exceeding industry standards.

How are we doing this? We’ve implemented an environmental committee, led by an Executive Champion, to develop, maintain, implement, and evaluate policies, procedures and training programs, aimed at minimizing the environmental impact of our operations in a socially and financially responsible manner.

As a family business, we run our business to set a path for future generations.

Sustainability

As a family business, it’s paramount that we run our business in a way that meets our current needs, but also sets a sustainable path for future generations.

For decades we have sourced our premium fancy molasses from a single sugar mill in Guatemala. They are dedicated to the responsible growth and harvest of sugar cane, and the production of molasses, meeting our quality standards in harmony with the environment.

To lessen our impact on the environment, our molasses is shipped directly to us by ocean going freighter. In doing so we’re able to ensure food safety and security, shorten the supply chain, and reduce carbon emissions.

We believe that applying sustainability practices to our business is essential for the future of our industry and our company. For us, it’s more than simply making smart business choices. It’s about making the right decisions for our climate, our environment and the communities where we operate.
