Nordzucker AG and Nordzucker Holding AG confirms positive outlook for 2021/22

Nordzucker AG’s 2020/21 financial year, which was reported to the joint general meeting, closed with EBIT of 81 Million Euro (previous year’s loss 15 Million Euro). The realignment of the sales strategy, the significant streamlining of the organisation and comprehensive permanent cost reductions made the operating result of 81 Million Euro possible, with a stable market environment supporting the positive business performance. The majority stake in Mackay Sugar Ltd. in Australia also made a positive contribution.
