AB Sugar is one of the largest sugar producers in the world. Employing more than 42,000 employees, operating in 10 countries, with a combined capacity to produce over five million tonnes of sugar annually, and it doesn't stop there! We have diversified geographically with sugar operations in Africa, South Africa, Spain and both North and South China in addition to the UK. As such, we are a core business within Associated British Foods - a diversified, international food, ingredients and retail group with sales of £12.3bn and 106,000 employees in 47 countries.
Our graduates play a key role in helping to achieve our vision - to be the world's leading sugar business. We have a shared purpose to be more than just a group of businesses, and aspire to be a truly international, recognised leader in the sugar industry.
Our commitment to our vision has seen us develop highly integrated manufacturing processes to produce a wide variety of co-products, from alcohol to animal feed, bioethanol to electricity, and tomatoes to soil conditioning products. Our diversity is one of the reasons our graduate schemes exceed our graduates’ expectations.
Each of our businesses is unique, with individual cultures and a diverse range of challenges. Consequently, we need our people to be adaptable in their approach to working in different environments. Our graduate scheme is just one of AB Sugar's programmes for those with the potential, focus and appetite for a long term international career. We are committed to developing people who show the judgment, drive and influence to thrive in our business and make a real contribution to the overall success of the group.
