Raw sugar

sustainability-certified raw sugar

At some production sites in the Sugar segment, AGRANA refines raw sugar from sugar cane into white sugar (either solely refining, or refining in addition to beet processing).

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.

Bonsucro

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.
