sustainability-certified raw sugar
To supply its raw sugar refining operations in the EU, AGRANA buys raw sugar from Least Developed Countries for the refineries in Romania and Hungary; the raw sugar for the refinery in Brcko, Bosnia-Herzegovina is sourced on the world market, primarily from Brazil.
In order to ensure sustainable supply chain for raw sugar as an input product AGRANA became a member of Bonsucro in July 2014. The membership in this multi-stakeholder platform for sustainable sugarcane enables AGRANA to support sustainable production. To be able to provide its customers with a Bonsucro Chain of Custody certificate, all AGRANA refining facilities are certified under a Bonsucro Chain of Custody Certification. The Certification enables AGRANA's customers to support sustainable production of sugarcane and to have confidence that their products are responsibly produced and sourced.
