WASHINGTON – Experienced sugar communicator Elizabeth Fusick has returned to the American Sugar Alliance (ASA) as its Director of Communications, the trade association announced today. Fusick previously worked with ASA as a communications consultant, gaining a deep understanding of the issues affecting America’s sugarbeet and sugarcane producers.  

As the Director of Communications, Fusick will work alongside the sugar industry to tell the sweet stories behind the farmers and workers who keep the country supplied with American-made sugar. America’s sugar producers rely on a robust Farm Bill and a strong U.S. sugar policy to navigate the challenges of farming and the threat of unfair foreign subsidies.  

“On behalf of America’s sugar industry, I’m thrilled to welcome Elizabeth back to the American Sugar Alliance,” said Cassie Bladow, Chairwoman of the American Sugar Alliance. “As Congress deliberates the next Farm Bill, her communications experience and agricultural policy expertise will be invaluable as we work to make our farmers’ voices heard on Capitol Hill.” 

In addition to more than five years of communications consulting for agricultural trade associations, Fusick also brings eight years of Capitol Hill experience to ASA.  

“It’s an incredible honor to once again have the opportunity to work alongside the sugarbeet and sugarcane producers who help keep America fed,” Fusick said. “With a Farm Bill on the horizon, communicating the importance of domestic sugar production is mission-critical to maintaining our national food security and giving multi-generational farming families the opportunity to thrive.”
