A message from our CEO, Dr Mark Carr

AB Sugar is one of the world’s largest and most diverse sugar businesses. Our group comprises several market leading sugar processing and related businesses with proud histories of innovation, growth and long-term commitment to their communities. 

Sugar is at the heart of what we do, but the sugar making process provides opportunities to do much more than simply manufacture an ingredient. We are an innovative and advanced manufacturer, producing a wide range of sugar and co-products. We are also an energy and power supplier as well as being part of the wider agri-business value chain that positions us as an important contributor to the circular economy across all our locations.

As a global business, we operate in a diverse and continually changing environment with many opportunities and challenges.

As we evolve to meet the changing needs of our world around us, it is our role to make sure our future development supports both our long-term success and the sustainability  of our wider supply chain and the communities where we operate.

By being open minded to innovation and striving to create more from less, by working together across our group and with our customers, growers and key stakeholders, I firmly believe we will achieve our vision to be the world’s leading sugar business.
