Royal Cosun is a Dutch agro-industrial group firmly rooted in the primary sector. The Cosun businesses – Aviko, Duynie, Sensus, Suiker Unie and SVZ – produce food ingredients and products that make their way to the food industry, foodservice sector and retail channels. In addition, the group is increasingly focusing on components for non-food applications.
Cosun's ambition is to get the most out of its raw materials: this is good for the environment and profitability and meets society's demand for responsible products and production methods. The Cosun businesses also supply products to the animal feed sector and residual products are used to produce biogas.
Royal Cosun was established more than a 110 years ago by Dutch sugar beet growers who united themselves in a cooperative. Today, the cooperative has nearly 9,500 member/shareholders and has grown into a group with some 3,400 FTEs and group turnover of about € 1.9 billion.
