Nordzucker is one of Europe's largest sugar manufacturers, with sugar beet extraction and processing activities dating back to 1838. It now operates 18 production facilities across its home market Germany as well as Denmark, Finland, Lithuania and others, with its products mostly supplied to the food and retail industries. Nordzucker also has sales offices in Ireland, Iceland, Lithuania, Greece, Norway and Estonia.
Nordzucker ranks 38th compared to its peers in the agricultural products and commodities segment. It performs better than its segment peers in the nutrition measurement area due to its food safety commitment. Unlike many of its peers, the company confirms that 100 percent of its locations are certified to the independent Foundation for Food Safety Certification’s production safety standard (FSSC 22000). Where the company has most opportunity for improvement is in the governance and strategy and the social inclusion measurement areas. Here, the company is lagging behind most of its peers. The company can benefit from increasing stakeholder engagement to help set its sustainable development strategy, therefore improving its targets and disclosure in all measurement areas.
