Golden Syrup was first formulated in 1883 by our company founder and chemist, Charles Eastick. Since that time in Victorian England little has changed in the recipe for the glorious elixir. The Ragus company was established by Charles Eastick in 1928 and today with 87 years of sugar experience and knowledge the company is a major specialist manufacturer and supplier producing over 31,000 tonnes of different sugar formulations annually.
