The sugar industry has become one of the main sources of foreign exchange for the country and generating numerous jobs in the Guatemalan economy. Its 12 mills and five member organizations contribute decisively to the development of fifty municipalities in the country and more than one million people, which constitutes a determining factor Guatemala’s progress.

The legislation that gave life to the Sugar Association of Guatemala (ASAZGUA) was approved on September 17, 1957 in Guatemala City. This is defined as a nonpartisan, nonprofit, composed of sugar producers of the Republic who wish to belong to the same autonomous entity.

The development of the sugar industry in Guatemala, since that time, has had as a fundamental basis the desire to maintain the unity of its members, to develop policies, programs and projects jointly.

In Guatemala, sugar production has always been private and has not received external support, or the state, contrary to what has happened in most sugar producing countries.
