HELIOS Nephrite meets the high demands of the traditional sugar producer, Tereos TTD
More than 190 years of sugar production history
The joint-stock company Tereos TTD is the largest producer of sugar and alcohol in the Czech Republic. Its two sugar factories and four distilleries annually produce up to 370,000 tonnes of white crystal sugar and 1,400,000 hectolitres of alcohol, both potable and anhydrous.
The history of the company dates back to 1831, when Prince Karel Anselm Thurn-Taxis had the castle in Dobrovice rebuilt as a sugar factory. Sugar has been produced continuously in Dobrovice since then, which is a unique phenomenon in Europe. Since 1992, the company has been in French capital hands, and today’s Tereos Group builds on the best of the rich Czech sugar tradition.
The only basic raw material for production is sugar beet. It is grown by more than 550 growers on an area of almost 37,000 hectares. The average yield of 80 tonnes of sugar beet per hectare puts Czech growers on a par with the most advanced sugar-producing countries in Europe.
