EISENHARDT has directly sourced from sugar cane refinery of limited excess of sugar available IC45- IC 150 and VHP 600 - 1200 from Brazil and Argentina in bulk and containerized cargoes.
We also export organic sugar and stevia from Paraguay in 20 and 40` containers.
WHAT IS SUGAR
Sugar is food also commonly known as sucrose is white crystaline susbtance (Sucrose) is a natural combination of fructose and glucose. It is very stable product.
TYPES OF SUGAR
Raw, Refined, Crystal, Muscovado, Demerara, Caster, Icing, Premium Liquid Sugar, Fine Liquid Sugar, Invert, White Crystal, Refined - Fine Granulated
HOW IS SUGAR MADE
Raw Sugar is made in large factories by crushing the cane sugar (Sachrum officenarum) or beet root (Beta vulgaris) to obtain juice and boiling this juice to remove water and processing the juice so obtained to make unrefined raw sugar. This is sometimes also known as panela. Generally cane sugar is produced by tropical countries and the beet sugar by the cold/European areas. CHEMICAL FORMULA FOR SUGAR 12C02 + 11H2O = C12 H22 O11 +12 02.
Sugar Producing Countries:
Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Poland, Turkey, Mexico, Russia ,UK, USA, West Indies.
WORLD SUGAR PRODUCTION
The World at the moment is annually producing about 160 millions tonnes. There are 110 countries involved in its production. It is estimated that 25 million tonnes is dumped on the world market below the market price.

The price of sugar is directly related to the quantity ordered and the quantity to be purchased under one order. The cost fo 250 tonnes is lot more expensive than for 50,000 tonnes. Other factors governing the prices are specification, destination, shipment quantily, and pack sizes.
Table sugar (sucrose) comes from plant sources. Two important sugar crops predominate: sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) and sugar beets (Beta vulgaris), in which sugar can account for 12% to 20% of the plant´s dry weight.
Most cane sugar comes from countries with warm climates, such as Brazil, India, China, Thailand, Mexico, Central America and Australia, the top sugar-producing countries in the world. Brazil overshadows most countries, with over one third of sugar produced, while producing the highest quantity product.

Interestingly, the traditional region for sugar production is not in the fertile area of Sao Paulo, but in the northeast, in the regions of Pernambuco and Algolas. The first sugar plantations and mills in these states were founded by the Dutch, who use slave labor to plant, harvest, sugarcane mill and process into sugar. Today there are still many sugar plantations and mills in the region, despite the fact that if not much less fertile than the Sao Paulo region, not to mention more difficult to harvest due to the mountainous terrain.
All sugar produced in Brazil is produced from sugar cane, of which there are many varieties.
Brazilian sugar mills have invested large amounts of time and money in developing new varieties of sugar cane which contains higher amounts of sucrose, are more resistant than previous strains, and crops that can produce high sucrose for several generations before that a field must be replanted. Brazilian sugar mills are renowned for their efficiency, and the overall emphasis, Brazilian sugar mills put very well not waste the resources associated with the sugar milling process.
