COLOMBIAN SUGAR INDUSTRY
One of the most efficient in the world, adaptable to the needs of its customers. (banner to welcome the section).
The Colombian sugar industry is located in the geographical Cauca river valley in the south west of the country. This valley, has exceptional growing conditions shared only by Hawaii and the north of Peru, with the pronounced day and night climactic differences, necessary for the concentration of sucrose in the cane. This privileged position allows grinding sugar cane and producing sugar throughout the year, unlike other sugarcane areas of the world where the cane harvest lasts only four to six months.
This and the remarkable fertility of the soil, make the Colombian sugar industry one of the four most efficient in the world, including the production of beet sugar.
Currently around two million four hundred thousand tons of sugar a year are produced in Colombia of which about 41% is exported. This makes us a supplier of average size within the standards of the international sugar market.
Within its export offer CIAMSA has raw sugar in bulk or in bags and different qualities of white sugar packed in different presentations (see products), with which we are able to meet all of our customers’ needs in terms of quality, packaging and delivery because of our suppliers ability to produce to order year round, instead of handling after harvest inventories. Our clients request, and we guarantee, fresh, newly manufactured product and punctual deliveries.
FIVE DECADES OF EXPORT TRADITION
The Colombian sugar industry has maintained its presence in international markets for about five decades, establishing trade with the major sugar processing companies in the world such as EDF MAN, LOUIS DREYFUS, SUCDEN AMERICAS, CARGILL, COMMODITY SPECIALIST, who are the principal testimony of the seriousness of our firm, validated by our ongoing business relationships.
