Producers are organisms that can make their own energy through biochemical processes, which are just processes in living things that involve chemical reactions. Also called autotrophs, the usual way producers make energy is through photosynthesis. Here, light energy is converted into sugars, which can then be broken down to release their chemical energy. When light is not present, like at the bottom of the ocean, some producers convert chemicals into energy through a process called chemosynthesis. However they do it, producers make energy for themselves and often provide food for other organisms.
