On the international retail/food service market, we supply a wide range of granulated sugar and sugar specialties. In the Netherlands, we do this under the Van Gilse brand.
During the production process, other products are generated apart from sugar:
- Sugar beet pulp for animal feed
- Betacal: lime fertilizer for agricultural purposes
- Molasses for the fermentation industry and animal feed
- Green gas resulting from the fermentation of the residual sugars in the washing water of the sugar beet. The gas is used as an energy source for the sugar factory
