Reducing processing aids
We use a large quantity of limestone to purify sugar juice. We are constantly seeking to minimise our use of limestone, as well as other processing aids such as soda, antifoaming and anti-scaling, setting local reduction targets where relevant.
We have a Technology & Innovation department responsible for developing new ways to improve resource efficiency in our sugar factory processes. New innovations currently in use in our factories include methods for extending the life of agricultural materials, as well as sensors in sugar centrifuges that reduce our use of wash water.
