Biosev is the world’s second largest sugarcane processor, with 11 industrial units strategically located in four Agroindustrial Clusters in Brazil. A subsidiary of Louis Dreyfus Commodities Holdings, the company started to operate in the sugar and ethanol industry in 2000, when it acquired its first unit in Brazil.
Since then it has grown significantly through both acquisitions and expansion projects that have led its crushing capacity to increase from 0.9 million metric tons/year in 2000 to 36.4 million metric tons/year today. Biosev manages 340,000 hectares of land and has surplus biomass power generation capacity of 1,346 GWh.
In 2013, the company joined the Novo Mercado, the listing segment of the Brazilian Stock Exchange (BM&FBovespa) which adopts the highest standards of corporate governance.
