One of the primary strategic goals of the company is to establish itself at the peak of the highest quality refiners of agricultural raw materials in the business sectors sugar, starch and fruit. Prerequisites for attaining and sustaining this goal are the careful selection of agricultural raw materials and the employment of state of the art environmentally sound and waste minimising technologies during the refinement process.
Due to AGRANA's strong relationships with the food processing industry, themes other than the technological aspects that are of increasing importance include food safety, quality management and retraceability of all industrial processes right back to the field, as well as social aspects and certifications (ISO 9001:2000, ISO 22000, International Food Standard, GMP+*, Quality & Safety).
AGRANA concentrates its efforts in environment and sustainability mainly in the following sub-sectors:
- Use of Energy and Raw Materials
- Water & Air
- Use of By-Products
- Consultancy Service for Agriculturalists
- Manufacture of Organic Products
