We operate an integrated sugar business across the entire value chain from sugar cane and beet plantations to the sweeteners aisle in supermarkets. In between, we operate sugar mills, cogeneration plants, ethanol distilleries, and sugar refineries across the globe, linking key origins and destinations through a market-leading merchandising team based in Singapore and Geneva. A white sugar marketing desk also operates from Dubai, centralising white sugar sales and distribution from our many refineries.

We are one of the world’s top 10 raw sugar producers, with operations in Australia and New Zealand, Indonesia, India, Saudi Arabia, Myanmar, Brazil and China. This global network and integrated supply chain gives us a unique position as one of the world’s largest international traders of sugar.

We are committed to the development of sustainable sugar through the NDPE Sugar Initiative. For Bonsucro certified volumes, our Singapore trading office is committed to implementing and maintaining the Bonsucro Chain of Custody requirements to ensure demand for certified sugar is met wherever possible.



Working in partnership with our suppliers


Working in partnership with our suppliers is a vital approach for Wilmar. This allows us to fortify our supply chain relationships to source sugar responsibly, mitigate risk and promote responsible and sustainable practices. We embrace the idea that profit should go hand in hand with ethical business practices.

Being one of the largest sugar traders in the world, Wilmar is committed to extend our approach to sustainability across our supply chain. Aligned with our core beliefs as indicated in the original NDPE policy and updated to reflect the key material issues within sugar supply chain, Wilmar launched our No Deforestation, No People Exploitation (NDPE) Sugar policy in September 2021. Key to this policy is the scope which extends beyond our operations to include joint ventures and third-party suppliers in the sugar supply chain.

Core to our NDPE Sugar policy is a commitment to create a transparent sourcing network through traceability mapping, which in turn enables us to better understand our supply chains and gain fuller visibility to origin. Ultimately, this also provides a solid foundation to implement our policy upon.
