This paper provides a comprehensive stocktaking of the major mergers and acquisitions and foreign direct investment flows in the world sugar industry. Companies like Raizen, Tereos and Biosev have rapidly increased their interests in Brazil; AB Sugar has become dominant in Sub-Saharan Africa while Mitr Phol and Wilmar International have enlarged their dominance in key producing regions in Asia.

One of the drivers of the continuous flow of cross-border investments into key players in the world sugar industry has been the search for increased efficiency through economies of scale and lower production costs. Moreover, fierce competition for new markets have seen an aggressive move by many of the world’s top ten companies, of which 7 have significant European capital, to expand into new sugar production areas – especially in Brazil and LDC Africa.
