Who are we?

Cosun Beet Company (formerly Suiker Unie) strives to be the greenest, most innovative and successful sugar beet processor in the world. With about 850 employees, we are one of the most efficient sugar producers in Europe. Besides developing, producing and selling sugar and sugar specialities, all components of the sugar beet are processed into products for food, energy and biobased products, among others. All components of the beet are utilised, so there is no waste. Sustainable entrepreneurship is woven into our strategy, for customers, growers and employees alike.
