On behalf of aroma and taste - series on the purchasing philosophy at Felchlin - crystal sugar
Sugar beet thrives optimally in Swiss soil and when it is harvested each individual beet consists of up to 20% sugar. The rest is used in sustainable sugar production to produce valuable raw materials, for example, animal feed, biogas and natural fertilisers. There is no waste and therefore the comprehensive utilisation of Swiss sugar beet makes a significant contribution to the exceptional ecological balance of Swiss sugar. This also incorporates superior energy efficiency and the consistent recycling of waste heat and waste water treatment during sugar production.
