Production & Quality

We strive to make the process of sugar extraction from beet increasingly efficient and sustainable. This involves using natural resources as efficiently as possible, as well as reducing energy consumption. We ensure high levels of product quality and safety, and optimise methods of transporting beet from farms to our factories in order to minimise fuel use and carbon emissions.

Production

Growing

Issue

We want to improve our production efficiency while reducing our adverse environmental impacts.

Growing

Challenge

By the year 2020, our target is to reduce energy consumption from sugar production by 45 per cent and carbon emissions by 65 per cent from a 1990 baseline. At the same time we must minimise our use of water, energy and other resources.

Growing

Strategy

We are developing new methods of operation and transportation that will reduce costs while also reducing our impact on the environment as a whole.
