Our consumer products
Introducing specific and high-quality products is one of our daily objectives since 1836.
Many of our products are Belgian specialties! The Hard Cube or Pearl Sugar, the essential ingredient for our famous Liège waffles, are inventions from our own country! Something we are very proud of... We take pride in our unique Belgian sugar specialties, which consumers can find under our two brands: Tiense Suiker/Sucres de Tirlemont and Candico.
Our Tiense Suiker/Sucres de Tirlemont range can be divided into four different categories:
- To sweeten hot drinks (e.g., our Hard Cube)
- For preparing desserts (e.g., our Fine Beet Sugar, our Pearl Sugar)
- For homemade jam (e.g., our various geleisuikers)
- For sprinkling (e.g., our powdered sugar, our Cassonade Graeffe)

The factory in Merksem (Antwerp), where Candico products are produced, has always played a significant role in the history of sugar production.
Today, Candico is primarily known for its two sugar categories:

- Candi specialties: candi sugar, candi brown sugar, candi syrup,...
