History[edit]

Tereos originates from the company called Sucreries et Distilleries de l’Aisne (SDA). In 1999 SDA merged with Sucrerie-Distillerie d’Artenay into Union SDA.

In 2002 sugar company Béghin-Say was taken over by Union SDA and Union des Planteurs de Betteraves à Sucre (Union BS)[1] and merged to Tereos S.A. in January, 2003.

In 2007 the starch sugar and bioethanol part (5 plants) of the European starch division of Tate & Lyle known as Amylum group, was bought by starch subsidiary Syral of Tereos. Syral has since closed the Greenwich plant.
