Presentation of the Finasucre Group

The group produces raw, direct consumption raw, white and refined sugar from cane and beet and markets them to industrial clients and to retail outlets in many different types of packaging. It also manufactures an entire line ofcaramels and specialities.

It sells renewable energy in the form of electricity, alcohol, molasses, beet pulps and other products used for animal feed.

Through its Galactic subsidiary, Finasucre is a large producer of lactic acid and its derivatives, most notably in the bioplastic area in which its subsidiary Futerro is heavily involved in the research. Finasucre is also involved in the engineering and production of equipment for sugar mills.

The group has factories throughout the world: Belgium, the Netherlands, Democratic Republic of Congo, Australia, China and the United States.

The group operates a concession of 11,700 hectares growing sugar cane in the Democratic Republic of Congo and has 14,700 hectares of arable land in Australia, as well as 4,900 hectares of land with a development potential.

For the year ended 31 March 2014, the group recorded a turnover of € 438 million and net assets of € 468 million. The group employs 3,018 people worldwide on a permanent basis and about 1,700 people during the campaign to produce 638,000 tons of sugar.

As Finasucre is convinced of the future importance of sugar as a source of renewable energy, it plans to develop this new aspect of the business while continuing to expand current uses of natural sweeteners in all of its markets. 

Finasucre is also diversifying into different real estate property sectors and making direct or indirect investments in companies that represent significant potential for growth.Naturex, in which the group is the leading shareholder, a worldwide leader in natural ingredients, illustrates the eagerness of the Board to diversify its investments.
