Our retail products
Producing specific and qualitative products in a consumer friendly packaging is one our our day-to-day goals, since 1836.
A lot of our products are Belgian specialties! Did you e.i. already had a Hard sugar Cube with your coffee in Spain? Our pearl sugar, the ingredient of the famous waffles from Liège, is also typical Belgian! We are very proud of this. We are proud of our unique Belgian sugar specialties that you can find within our two brands: Sucres de Tirlemont and Candico.
Tirlemont Sugar falls into four separate categories:
- Sweetener for hot drinks;
- for the preparation of desserts;
- for home-made jam;
- as caster sugar.
The factory in Merksem, where our Candico range of products are produced, has always had an important role in the history of sugar production.
Today, Candico is known for its products that you put in two categories:
- products based on cane sugar: cubes, cane sugar in a handy tetra pack... This sugar is bio sugar or Fair Trade certified.
- Candy sugar specialties: cane sugar, sugar candy, candy syrup,... Interested in having more information about these sweet products? Don't hesitate and visit www.candico.be. You will find the complete product range but also inspiration for sweet recipes!
Candico Sugars of the World
Candico’s new range Sugars of the World takes you on a sweet trip around the world. The two products in the range bring an alternative to cane and beet sugar, and are organic certified : the Bio Agave Powder has its roots in Mexico while the Bio Coconut Sugar comes all the way from Indonesia. Both products will provide you with a unique sweet taste and make you venture into new culinary experiences, with lower glycaemic levels to boot. The raw materials are selected with great care.

The sugar we produce is extracted from locally grown sugar beets, by local farmers - something we're very proud of. The local aspect of our sugar production and the long-lasting partnership we've entertained with the beet farmers are well deserving of some dedicated attention. Therefore, we decided to renew the packaging of the 1kg Fine Sugar.
