Our B2C range is expanding to include organic sugars and sugars with High Environmental Value
In April, two new ranges of Béghin Say sugar will be hitting the shelves of supermarkets and hypermarkets, providing access to a healthy and sustainable diet to the greatest number of people.
All of our products are part of an ambitious program focused on environmental issues, the future of the French agricultural sector and consumer expectations. With this in mind, our Béghin Say brand is expanding its range with French organic sugar and sugar from sugar beets grown in France, on farms with HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale — High Environmental Value) certification.
Organic Sugars: The Culmination of a Collaborative Ambition
Back in 2019, the Group delved into the Organic world, backing partnerships with organic growers in the cultivation of organic sugar beet and supporting planters in the process of converting, in accordance with organic farming regulations. Rather than being just a transitional first step, it was part of a cross-cutting approach, driven by the desire to meet the challenge of an increasingly healthy and sustainable food model for the future.
This commitment is now taking shape among consumers with the launch of the Béghin Say French Organic Sugar range in supermarkets that is:
Sold in brand new, sleek and appealing, green packaging, which is 100% recyclable.
New Products with HVE Certification
Béghin Say is the first beet sugar brand to offer French sugar from HVE-certified farms. Produced at the Tereos sugar factory in Artenay (Loiret), the Béghin Say range committed to HVE farming is available as cubes and caster sugar. It will also be sold in 100% recyclable cardboard packaging.

Following the Group's recent donations of sugar, it is boosting its support for food banks by providing an essential new product
The Group was extremely active in providing support during the first phase of the health crisis by donating hydroalcoholic solution, and it is continuing its commitment to organizations working on behalf of those who are most disadvantaged. As part of a partnership spanning a number of years, Tereos donated 30 pallets—24,000 liters—of hydroalcoholic gel last January to the FFBA (Fédération Française des Banques Alimentaires — French Federation of Food Banks). This product will be distributed across the FFBA's six branches to supply food banks on the ground.
The gel has of course become a basic need for this organization and its beneficiaries, in the same way as the sugar already distributed in the form of donations by Tereos in France. These came in the form of individual donations made by employees of the Group and an annual institutional donation of 25,000 tons.
A gift made possible with the development of a new product
This hydroalcoholic gel is the result of research and development work that began at Tereos Sugar France after an initial emergency phase favoring hydroalcoholic solution that was quicker to introduce at the plant. Like the hydroalcoholic solution, Tereos' new hydroalcoholic gel is made using alcohol from French agriculture and marketed by Tereos Sugar France as a leading player in this field for the pharmaceutical market. It produces a natural, odorless, antibacterial and antiviral gel.
Once the development pilots were complete, teams at Tereos Sugar France selected one of the formulations tested, creating an opportunity to donate the batches that were not kept but that still met the optimum quality requirements.
Helping those who help: In 2020, over a million more people in food insecurity
An obvious solution to the very important needs raised by the FFBA. "This past year has put a lot of charities under strain. The idea of reaching out to those who serve the most vulnerable came about quite naturally and we are proud to help our long-standing partner, the FFBA. Thanks to the organization's nationwide network, this product can benefit the greatest number of people and this initiative provides us with a sense of purpose toward a common cause," says Laurent Perrette, Public Affairs Manager at Tereos.
For several months, the organization has been faced with two challenges: protecting its volunteers who have been very active on the ground since the start of the pandemic, but also the vulnerable people who come to the premises — whose numbers have increased in 2020 (+20% vs 2019). Indeed, more than a million people fell into poverty in France, according to figures published by the organization at the end of the year.

Milestone in 2020! Tereos has finalized the assessment of its cereals.
Our goals: to bring value to our raw materials and support our customers in achieving their ambitions of sustainability
Committed to being a more sustainable agro-industrial player? In 2016, Tereos was already a pioneer in sugar production, by rolling out the SAI (Sustainable Agriculture Initiative) Platform assessment for sugar beets to its 12,000 cooperators. SAI Platform is an independent organization that regularly assesses the sustainability of our agricultural raw materials along three lines: environmental protection and economic and social management. At the end of 2020, Tereos completed its process: after one year of audit, its wheat and corn producers have their raw materials certified.
Sustainable cereals: a unique offering
While sustainability has been a well-established concept in sugar production for several years, the cereal market is gradually structuring itself around sustainability. By becoming one of the first agri-food players to have its wheat and corn audited, Tereos is taking the initiative to expand its offer, and to offer solutions to its customers seeking more responsible products that are more respectful of the planet. It also enables to bring added value to agricultural raw materials in connection with new outlets for these certified products.
