The sugar industry is changing and evolving year after year. 2017 will be another mile stone. The sugar quota will be abolished, the market will be liberalized and the world sugar price will have a growing impact. These changes go hand in hand with a lot of challenges for Raffinerie Tirlemontoise.
Since several years already, Raffinerie Tirlemontoise has been renewing and modernizing its factories in order to deal with these challenges and remain one of the most important players on the European sugar market. Raffinerie Tirlemontoise is therefore focussing on two pillars. Firstly, by enhancing the competitiveness of its essential products like bulk sugar, fondants, etc, mainly by optimizing cost management. Secondly, by investing in unique sugar specialties like the Hard Cubes, candi sugar etc.
