Pass the sugar

Last sugar plantation in Hawaii to close this year

Hawaii’s last sugar plantation will wind down by the end of this year, its owner announced today.

Alexander & Baldwin Inc. said it will phase out sugarcane farming on Maui at Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. over the next 12 months and transition the 36,000-acre farm to a diversified crop model.
