Based on the results of 2012, the Group is the second largest producer of sugar in the Ukrainian market, with a total output of 228 thousand tons annually.
The Ukrlandfarming Group owns six sugar plants with a total annual output capacity of 450 thousand tons of sugar. The facilities are located close to the main sugar beet cultivation areas, which allows for the processing of the beets with minimum transportation and storage costs. The Company’s own raw materials supply 99% of the plants’ needs.
According to Pro-Consulting , in 2012 the average sugar conversion ratio (the ratio of pure sugar produced to the amount of beets used) at the Group’s plants was 14.0%, which is one percentage point above the Ukrainian average.
