The Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association was founded in 1895 as an unincorporated, voluntary organisation of sugar plantation owners in the Hawaiian Islands. Its objective was to promote the interests of its members and the development of the sugar industry in the islands. The HSPA conducted scientific studies and gathered records about the industry, campaigned to bring workers to Hawaii, opening offices in Manila, Vigan and Illocos Sur to recruit Filipino workers and provide them free passage to Hawaii. The association also lobbied for legislation, labor and immigration policies beneficial to the sugar industry in Hawaii. It is now known as the Hawaii Agriculture Research Center.
