Südzucker is one of Europe's largest sugar producers, resulting from the acquisition of diverse individual sugar factories in the continent. The company owns around 30 sugar plants and 3 refineries in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. It has an annual output capacity of five million tonnes, and also has processing activities across sugar products. Südzucker predominantly serves the food, retail, animal feed and petroleum industries.
Südzucker positions itself in the top half of its segment, agricultural products and commodities, ranking 60 out of 142. Compared to its peers, the company performs within the average for the environment, nutrition and social inclusion measurement areas, while lacking strong commitments in all of them. The company is behind most of its peers in the governance and strategy areas, despite having determined its most relevant topics. The company could benefit from setting up a governance structure to oversee its sustainable development strategy, as well as by establishing a continuous and organised stakeholder engagement practice.
