Our Company

Alvean locations and facilities.

Alvean is one of the global leaders in the sugar industry specialising in originating, commercializing and trading raw and white sugar. By combining decades of experience, comprehensive global market knowledge, trading expertise and a unique supply base together with integrated logistics, our employees across 10 countries worldwide are uniquely placed to deliver the best service to our customers globally.

Alvean was formed in 2014 when parent companies Cargill and Copersucar decided to combine their global sugar trading activities. By blending the complementary strengths of the two parent companies, we strive to:

  • Deliver the quality of sugar that meets your needs:  Alvean has the logistical and commercial means to provide a wide range of origins and sugar qualities. Through Copersucar’s partner mills in Brazil – complemented by Thai, Indian, Central American and Australian origins – we can efficiently deliver from port to destination in a timely manner.
  • Tap into unique logistics capabilities: Our proven track record in logistics management and access to rail and port elevation terminals in Brazil create unique opportunities for our customers.
