The Sugarmark logo was created in the 1970s by Comité Européen des Fabricants de Sucre (CEFS) – a body representing major sugar producers in the EU and Switzerland. CEFS is the trademark rights holder of the Sugarmark in all countries of the EU. At the time, concerns were being raised about artificial sweeteners and the health implications of these lab-developed foods. Today the Sugarmark can work alongside both ethical and sustainable labelling bodies. With the origin of our food once more a concern for many of us, the Sugarmark is now widely used internationally as a quality mark to show the purity of sugar and sugar ingredients.
