Zilor Energia e Alimentos comprises two main business areas: Zilor, a sugar-energy company with three industrial units that produces sugar, ethanol and energy; and Biorigin, a multinational biotechnology company that specializes in making 100% natural ingredients from sugarcane for the food, animal nutrition, wine and industrial fermentation industries. Biorigin has units in Brazil, the United States and Belgium and distributors in all continents, and approximately 90% of its production is exported to over 60 countries, located mainly in North America and Europe.

Zilor combines its diversified portfolio of high value-added products, which balances its exposure to market oscillations, with a strong social and environmental positioning.

With a milling capacity of 12 million tons per year, we are a major player in the sector, and our Copersucar S.A. unit is the largest Brazilian sugar and ethanol exporter, with guaranteed sale of its main products.

In the last few years, we have been making sizable investments in increasing and modernizing facilities and diversifying businesses, thanks to high-quality strategic planning of investments.
