Organic and fair trade sugar has traditionally been part of PRONATECS' core business. We deliver sugar to the food processing industry and food retailers.
PRONATEC is pioneer in the area of organic sugar.
- SYRAMENA® the world's first organic raw cane sugar
- SUCANAT® is the world's first organic whole cane sugar
- White cane sugar
Our organic sugar comes from one of our long-term projects in the countries of origin and can be delivered with a Fairtrade certication.
We source our organic sugar directly from the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Columbia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Thailand, India and Madagascar.
A product comparison conducted by Climatop shows that the climate impact of our SYRAMENA® organic raw cane sugar (FLO / Max Havelaar) from Paraguay is about 40% lower than that of organic beet sugar from Europe.
SYRAMENA® - Raw cane sugar
The crystalline raw cane sugar SYRAMENA® is an ideal substitute for beet sugar and is very popular with milk processors as well as producers of drinks, chocolate, bread, cakes and pastries.
Having eight qualities with graded amounts of molasses ensures that our customers can purchase the ideal sugar for every purpose. Ground sugar and icing sugar complete our product range.
SYRAMENA® is also available in demeter quality. Thanks to the bio-dynamic cultivation of sugarcane by our partner La Felsina in Paraguay, the ground remains vital and raw material grows in harmony with the environment.
SUCANAT® - Whole cane sugar
When Albert Yersin founded PRONATEC AG in 1976 his motivation was to introduce a healthy, tooth-friendly sugar to Europe.
His work was based on long-term studies by Swiss pediatrician Dr. Max-Henry Béguin, which proved that children consistently fed with whole cane sugar hardly suffered from tooth decay. Extensive research led to the discovery of a drying process by which PRONATEC produced the first organic whole-cane sugar in Switzerland, successfully marketed under the brand name SUCANAT®. Compared with other types of sugar, SUCANAT® contains the most minerals, trace elements and vitamins.
