Growing a green future together

The greenest beet processor in Europe: that’s the ambition that Suiker Unie pursues every day. Suiker Unie’s mission is to extract the maximum value from its sugar beet.

Suiker Unie is a committed believer in sustainability and recognises its responsibilities to protect the natural environment and society for the benefit of future generations.
