Our patented bio-fermentation process starts with sustainable sugarcane. This renewable sugarcane feedstock is grown irrigation-free in coastal Brazil — far from the rainforest. As Brazil is the world leader in sugarcane production (forecasted to produce over 36M tons of sugarcane in 2023), we have a stable, continuous supply of rapidly renewable sugarcane. To decrease our carbon footprint, we recently opened a new bio-fermentation facility in Barra Bonita. The proximity between the sugarcane mills and our bio-fermentation plant minimizes the fossil fuels used in transport.
Third-Party Verified for Ethical, Sustainable Supply Chains
Bonsucro, a World Wildlife Fund-founded NGO, certifies fair treatment and wages — as well as sustainability — for all along the sugarcane supply chain.
Upcycling and Repurposing for a Better Planet
The patented technology behind our bio-fermentation manufacturing process ensures each drop of sugar is used as effectively as possible. Any waste products are repurposed:
- 60% of the water is recycled
- Spent yeast are applied as fertilizer
- Bagasse is used to create steam power for bio-fermentation and the local power grid
