Godchaux's Pure Cane Sugar was produced at a sugar refinery in Reserve, Louisiana, where Leon Godchaux, the company founder, was known as Louisiana's "Sugar King", according to Brand Name Marketing, an online reference guide to brand name ingredients, appliances, housewares and kitchen tools of the past and present. An interesting anecdote? Godchaux bought his first sugarcane plantation in 1850, but never owned slaves.
So what happened to the company? In 1958, the Godchauxs sold the mill and refinery to the National Sugar Refining Company. The grinding mill was closed, and only the refinery was operated. The Hunt Brothers purchased the refinery in 1975, where it operated until 1985, when the refinery closed its doors forever.
