What we do

Our services span the sugar supply chain, from sourcing the best raw natural materials globally

Ragus operations

Our UK sugar factory close to west London, has recently opened. It’s been designed to the latest food manufacturing standards, uses highly efficient processes and includes smart technology to ensure we deliver our pure sugars, glucose syrups and specialist blends on time and in full to customers. We supply artisan bakers and brewers to well-known blue chip global brands with sugar products that are used across the baking, brewing, confectionery, drinks and pharmaceutical, industries.
