Growers and producers

Growers who apply to use the mark must abide by the Sugarmark’s quality criteria for white and raw sugar. These are defined by the Codex Alimentarius Commission and include standards for hygiene and strict limits for the use of additives and pesticides. Codex Alimentarius was set up by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN to promote the cause of safe, good food for everyone, everywhere.

Sugar refiners also use the Sugarmark. They process raw cane or beet sugar and must similarly abide by the international standard of the Codex Alimentarius.

Food and drinks

Food manufacturers use the Sugarmark on their packaging to show two things. First, that sugar is batch traceable from a refinery or processor. And, second that their produce contains pure sugar- grown on the land and not in a lab, without the need for low-cost ‘bulk sweeteners’ such as glucose and fructose.
