MORE THAN SUGAR
We focus on supplying our diverse range of sugar products to the domestic markets in which we operate and to our regional neighbours, with high sea exports of bulk and speciality sugars to long-standing international customers.
Illovo also produces syrup, together with a range of downstream products including furfural and furfuryl alcohol, natural flavourants, high-quality ethyl alcohol, and lactulose.
Through our own internal electricity-generating capability, using bio-renewable boiler-feedstock such as the cane fibre residue post the extraction process, we aim to ensure reliable, cost-effective energy supply to all of our own operations and where economically viable, to export power into the national grids of the countries in which we operate.
OUR CONSUMER PRODUCTS
Our local brands, which are respected for our trusted quality by our consumers and customers alike, can be found in millions of homes across Africa. Knowing that our sugar sweetens a cup of tea, provides the enjoyment in a bowl of porridge before school, or is purchased across the counter in a sugar-containing product are the things that energise us most.
With almost 80% of all our manufactured sugar sold locally in domestic and regional markets, and both to direct consumers and industrial customers, we are proudly woven into our thriving community across the region - #AfricanSugarforAfricanMarkets.
OUR BRAND PORTFOLIO
We also produce raw, refined, and speciality sugar in bulk for our customers across Africa, the European Union (EU), and the United States of America (USA).
We take pride in our continued diversification of the business through the manufacture of products downstream of the sugar-making process and in our emerging focus on driving new high-growth opportunities through innovation and digitalisation initiatives.
