Group structure

The Nordzucker Group is divided into the three regions of Central, Northern and Eastern Europe.

Central Europe

In the Central Europe region, Nordzucker AG operates five sugar plants in Germany. The plants are in Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, and produce around one million tonnes of quota sugar every year. Sugar from the Central European region is mainly sold on the German market. Markets outside the EU account for around five per cent of sales.

Other products of the sugar-making process are also sold, such as animal feed and molasses.

In addition, Nordzucker produces and markets bioethanol from intermediate products of the sugar-making process (raw juice, thick juice) and molasses at its plant in Klein Wanzleben.

Nordzucker AG holds a majority stake in Norddeutsche Flüssigzucker GmbH & Co. KG (NFZ), which operates two liquid sugar plants, in Nordstemmen and Groß Munzel.

An average of 1,247 employees worked in the Central Europe region in the financial year 2013/2014. Its business accounted for around 44 per cent of Group revenues.

Northern Europe

In the Northern Europe region, Copenhagen-based Nordic Sugar produces sugar in five plants and two refineries in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Lithuania. The company markets a broad range of sugar products, above all in the Nordic countries, the Baltic states and Ireland. Nordic Sugar is the market leader in Northern Europe and its 1,509 employees contributed around 40 per cent to Nordzucker’s consolidated revenues in 2013/2014.

NP Sweet is also based in Copenhagen. The joint venture between Nordzucker and PureCircle develops and distributes products based on the sweetener stevia (steviol glycosides) in collaboration with its customers.

Eastern Europe

The Eastern Europe region includes two sugar plants in Poland, one of which is also used as a sugar refinery, and one in Slovakia. Furthermore, Nordzucker has a 35 per cent stake in Tereos TTD a.s., a sugar producer in the Czech Republic. The Eastern Europe sales area also includes a number of other Eastern European states. Nordzucker had an average of 523 employees in the Eastern Europe region in 2013/2014. It accounted for around 16 per cent of consolidated revenues.
