Administrative history

Lantic, Inc. has its roots with the Acadia Sugar Refining Co., a Scottish incorporation, originally formed from a consolidation of three refinery operations in Nova Scotia. These three refineries were originally known as Atlantic Sugar Refineries. Some time before 1990 the company changed its name from Atlantic Sugar Refineries to Lantic Sugar Limited.

In 1990, 50% of Lantic and its American subsidiary, Refined Sugars, Inc. were purchased by The British Columbia Sugar Refining Company, Limited (BC Sugar). The remaining 50% of Lantic was purchased in 1992. The three companies (BC Sugar, Lantic, and Refined Sugars) continued to operate in their individual markets under their existing brand names. As of 1992, Lantic Sugar Limited was a wholly-owned subsidiary of The British Columbia Sugar Refining Company, Limited.

In 1997, the holding company of BC Sugar (and therefore of Lantic), BC Sugar Refinery Company, Limited, was taken over by a consortium consisting of Belcorp and Onex Corp. A significant reorganisation of all the companies after the takeover resulted in the breakup of the assets of BC Sugar and dissolution and replacement of the holding company. Lantic Sugar Limited was spun off from the BC Sugar operating company and continued under direct ownership of the consortium. The BC Sugar operating company was renamed Rogers Sugar Inc., and continued as a privately-held company owned by the new holding company, Rogers Sugar Income Trust, which replaced BC Sugar Refinery Company.

In 2008, another corporate reorganisation occurred. Rogers Sugar Inc. ceased to exist as an independent operating company. It was merged with Lantic Sugar Limited to form a new operating company: Lantic Inc., the name under which the company continues to operate.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Series consists of records documenting the construction of a sugar refinery in Saint John, New Brunswick. The records consist primarily of contract files, which include specifications, drawings, contracts and correspondence with suppliers and contractors, as well as related photographs. The series also contains a small quantity of material collected by the BC Sugar Museum about Atlantic Sugar operations.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition

The records appear to have been sent to the BC Sugar Museum after a wide call was put out for material to use in the BC Sugar Museum in the early 1970s.
