The Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Sugar Industry Innovation through Biotechnology or CRC Sugar was created in 2003 to combine Australia's strengths in molecular genetics, sugarcane biology, agriculture, and industrial extraction to construct the essential platform of scientific understanding, intellectual property, and commercial linkages that will underpin a value-added sugarcane industry.
CRC Sugar received funding for an initial period of seven years which ended on 30 June 2010. The commercial activities of the CRC SIIB were continued under the banner of Sacron Innovations Pty Ltd.
