ABOUT AB SUGAR - a world leading sugar business
Our vision & business breakdown Infographic

We make and sell sugar and sugar-related products to people and businesses around the world. 

AB Sugar is a group of businesses that is part of Associated British Foods plc (ABF), the international ingredients and retail group. We operate across 27 plants in 10 countries and employ around 32,000 people.

The heart of our business is making and selling sugar, but we do much more than that. As well as ‘core products’, made from sugar beet and sugar cane, we also make ‘co-products’, which can include anything one or two ‘steps’ away from the sugar-making process: animal feed, soil conditioners, electricity, bioethanol and seed enhancements.

Our products are sold into industry sectors including food and drink, pharmaceutical, industrial, agricultural and horticultural, power and energy.
