Committed across the whole value chain

All our products are grown naturally. We are proud of our relationship with the 10,000 sugar beet farmers who make up the Cristal Union and Lesaffre Frères cooperatives. Through their hard work, our sugar beet is farmed responsibly and sustainably, and we continue to be a pillar of French agribusiness in terms of both ethics and performance. Like our sugar, our alcohol and bioethanol products are also naturally produced – and, across our entire business, our strategy sits hand-in-hand with our social and environmental responsibilities.
