“With 29 sugar factories and two refineries, we at Südzucker are the single biggest sugar producer in Europe. Our strategy is to continue to expand our worldwide sugar business, and to look for partners who can help facilitate our access to key markets. We have found one such partner in Euroports. Together, we have designed solutions that will help us both meet the needs of the market.

The specialised terminals that Euroports operates in France and Belgium meet the highest operating standards and are equipped with state-of-the-art handling equipment that cuts the time from unloading to packaging and loading, and with a minimum chance of contamination. The recently obtained IFS certification is also a strong business enabler for us. Euroports has shown time and again that it is a partner we can rely on.
