McKeany-Flavell offers extensive knowledge of the sweeteners market, available supply options, and strategic purchasing strategies. Commodity sweeteners include cane sugar, beet sugar, and starch-derived sweeteners such as glucose, dextrose, and high fructose corn syrup. Specialty sweeteners include organic and non-biotech sweeteners and starch-based syrups from rice and tapioca.

The U.S. sugar market has changed significantly with the introduction of the Suspension Agreements. These agreements have not only set a Mexican import quota system but also an explicit target to balance U.S. sugar supply and use. Other trends also factor into the U.S. sweetener picture: obligations and opportunities under free-trade agreements (and how renegotiation might affect such agreements), the health of the sugar industry in other key global production regions, and consumer interest in organic and non-biotech sweeteners and reduced sugar and calorie formulations.
