The sugar factory in Nykøbing was established in 1884 by farmers. Raw sugar is also processed here. We can process sugar beets from about 170 hectares per day.
We produce sugar, molasses and animal feed in Nykøbing. Under the DanSukker brand, we market around half of the sugar produced to the retail sector, while the other half is supplied to the further processing industry. We also produce specialities here, such as brown sugar and icing sugar.
