2010 Land Report 100: The Fanjul Family

The Fanjul family ranked No. 61 on the 2010 Land Report 100. Headquartered in Florida’s Palm Beach County, the Fanjuls’ privately owned Florida Crystals is the first (and only) domestic producer of certified organic sugar. The company has a tradition of proactively pursuing eco-friendly production innovations and has worked tirelessly on sustainability initiatives and efforts such as Everglades restoration.

“I love land so much even my hobbies revolve around land. I spend every free weekend at Amistad, my 2,500-acre private shooting preserve,” says J. Pepe Fanjul, company vice chairman, president, and chief operating officer.

“Amistad was honored with the Florida Agriculture Board’s award of excellence for the way we environmentally manage the land. This recognition was truly special to me, because Amistad is the namesake of one of our family’s ranches in my home country Cuba that was lost after the Communist takeover.”
