Rooted in our corporate culture
Since its founding in the nineteenth century, Südzucker has had a strong association with agriculture and thus also with nature. Refining agricultural raw materials to produce high-quality products for the food industry, end consumers and industrial applications is core to our business model – and we do it on a large scale: In fiscal 2016/17, for example, the company processed about 34 million tonnes of agricultural raw materials, such as sugar beets, grain, corn, chicory and fruits, at around 100 production sites around the world. These raw materials must be available at all times if the medium to long-term business foundation of the company is to be sustained. Sustainability is also one of our customers' corporate values and increasingly influences consumers’ buying decisions.
The principle of sustainability is therefore a company tradition and a fixed and practiced part of our corporate strategy. Sustainable business practices should be embedded in all parts of the company and all regions on all levels, from management to each individual employee.
