Our Business - tractor ploughs field in front of British Sugar Factory
You will find our sugar on supermarket shelves under the Silver Spoon brand, one of the UK’s leading food brands. Our products also form ingredients in the leading brands of international food and drink manufacturers.

Our sugars are recognised for their consistent quality, high purity levels and superior flavour, often contributing to a 'clean label solution' for manufacturers. They are non-GM and suitable for vegan and vegetarian diets.

British Sugar is the UK’s leading sugar supplier, processing the country’s entire annual sugar beet crop of 7.5 million tonnes, extracting over 1 million tonnes of sugar and producing an additional 500,000 tonnes of animal feed from sugar beet pulp each year.

Located in East Anglia and the East Midlands, our four state-of-the-art processing plants match anything in the oil, chemical and power industries. Using a highly integrated approach to manufacturing, we develop and sell a diverse range of sustainable products. From sugar to electricity and animal feed, each product we market responds to customer needs, whilst making a contribution to our efficient use of raw materials.

Our vision is to be the leading supplier of agriculturally based products in Europe, by exceeding the demanding and diverse needs of our customers. We want to be recognised for our passion, performance and people, and our graduates are vital to this success.

British Sugar UK & Ireland is part of AB Sugar. The company has grown into one of the largest sugar producers in the world; employing more than 42,000 people, operating in 10 countries with a production capacity of around 5 million tonnes of sugar each year from both beet and cane.
