Nile Sugar’s “White Granulated Sugar” is a free-flowing white crystalline food of the highest quality (35 IU colour) and ultimate purity (99.95%). From February to June each year this sugar is extracted from locally grown sugar beets, and the resulting sugar juice is then purified and concentrated. Then the sucrose content is crystallised, then washed and finally dried and presented for distribution. At other times of the year, impure raw sugar from overseas cane sugar plantations (e.g. Brazil) is imported to the factory and is converted into the same high quality Nile Sugar white granulated sugar using a sophisticated sugar refining process. Nile Sugar’s 2011 plan is to produce 110,000 tonnes from local sugar beets, and 150,000 tonnes from imported raw cane sugar.

The residual sugar beet fibre, remaining after sugar extraction, is then pressed, dried and pelleted to produce a highly nutritious animal feed supplement. This is available to farmers and feed producers as an 8 mm diameter “Animal Feed Pellet”, containing an array of naturally occurring valuable ingredients, with a sugar content of 2.5% and a moisture content of 11%. Nile Sugar’s 2011 plan is to produce 42,000 tonnes.

When no more sugar can be economically crystallised from the factory liquors and syrups, the final liquor is known as “Molasses”. This is stored in large tanks until collected by customers who use it primarily as a feedstock in fermentation processes, where the end products can be baker’s yeast, or industrial alcohol, or even citric acid. Typically, Nile Sugar molasses is available throughout the year at 80% brix, 59% purity and 8.0 ph. Nile Sugar’s 2011 production will reach 45,000 tonnes.
