To reduce environmental impact a leading sugar-producing company desired to shift its focus to organic farming, which involves using natural fertilizers and pesticides

Growing environmental concerns about agricultural techniques and the health consequences of eating too much-processed foods have drawn our client's attention to organic farming. Through its partnership with Research Nester, the business put its attention on sustainable development.


In a Nutshell


The company's main businesses include the production of sugar from sugarcane, the fermentation of molasses to make monosodium glutamate and alcohol, the pulping and papermaking of bagasse, the production of filter mud, and the use of other waste to create bio-organic fertilizer. The business offers its clients high-quality seeds and germplasm as well as industrialization including mills, refineries, and network infrastructure. Additionally, it creates bioproducts, such as paper pulp from bagasse, ethanol from molasses, and electrical energy from biomass, which are by-products of the sugar industry that are utilized as raw materials.


The company intends to build a sustainable supply of raw materials to support a fully integrated business network for the production of high-quality goods and clean, environmentally friendly biomass energy.


The Story

Granulated sugar is comparable to cane sugar, which is produced only from sugarcane rather than sugar beets and undergoes far less processing. Over time, there has been a rise in the consumption of cane sugar. Numerous baked goods, including cookies, biscuits, cakes, pastries, muffins, jams, and marmalades, require cane sugar. In addition to chocolates, it is used in ice cream.
This contributes to an increase in demand for cane sugar. In the beverage sector, cane sugar is utilized heavily. Due to the global rise in infectious diseases and chronic disorders, the need for tablets and syrups is rapidly expanding. As a result, the use of cane sugar in the manufacture of medications and syrups is fueling market expansion. Moreover, managing social and environmental risks is essential for sugarcane growers, processors, and food companies due to regulatory pressures and shareholder and consumer expectations for sustainably produced goods. Furthermore, the demand for tablets and syrups is rising quickly as a result of the growth in infectious illnesses and chronic ailments worldwide. As a result, the market is growing owing to the usage of cane sugar in the production of syrups and pharmaceuticals.

Numerous risks, including credit risk, sugar price risk, foreign exchange risk, and interest rate risk, were present for our customer. The business had just a little geographic reach. Owing to rigorous lockdown procedures and supply chain interruptions, the company's sales decreased by up to 5% during the pandemic. The primary cause of the 10% sales decline over the last four years was a lack of segmentation in corporate operations. Additionally, our customer wanted to build sustainable goods and concentrate on their core competencies as in recent years, consumers' changing eating preferences have increased the use of high sugar.
