people of AB Sugar

People are the key to our success, which is why we work hard to keep everyone safe and help them develop the skills they need now and for the future.

We also do everything we can to achieve equality and diversity in all our businesses.

As a diverse and developed business we ensure we have appropriate succession and development plans for our people.​

Our people have the opportunity to develop their career across our sugar businesses and the wider ABF group.

To continue growing in the future, we have to maintain our pipeline of talent across a wide range of functions from agriculture to engineering, from analysts to technicians and much more.​

That means ensuring we are building future focused capability within all our businesses, and making sure the next generation of workers have the right skills. We want all our people to develop the skills they need and inspire them to be their best.
