04 Dec Euroports Has Just Upgraded Its Sugar Terminal, TA518, in Antwerp—and Won IFS Food Certification
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve just finished expanding and further improving our dedicated sugar terminal, TA518, in Antwerp—just in time for the first delivery trains of the 2017 – 2018 sugar season. This commitment to excellence has also allowed us to secure International Food Standard (IFS) certification. The capacity of the container bagging machinery has doubled, and the overall throughput capacity of the terminal is now 635,000 metric tonnes per annum, thus making it the largest facility of its kind in Europe. We’re pleased with the upgrades and with the IFS certification—but we won’t be stopping here: in view of the strong industry demand, we’ll be making further investments in the terminal, thereby increasing its total capacity by another 20% for the 2018 – 2019 sugar season.
