About us > The Iscal group
The Iscal group
From crystal sugar to powdered sugar, not forgetting decorative sugar pellets, Iscal is present in three sites in the Benelux.
The beet sugar factory of Fontenoy
Our headquarters are located in Fontenoy, close to Tournai. Built in 1993 on the site of the battle of Fontenoy, we have constructed the most modern beet sugar factory in Europe. With the capacity to transform 12’000 tons of beet every day and boasting energy performance levels that are well above average, the Fontenoy beet sugar factory is one of the best performing factories in Europe.
Acquired in 1988 and decommissioned as a beet sugar factory in 2007, the Frasnes site retains its silo that can hold 50’000 tons of sugar. It is also the site where granulated sugar is transformed into powdered sugar. At this historically important site for the region, we have retained a team of around 15 employees to keep things running.
With Alldra, we offer our clients another asset in the sugar-producing world. Specialized in toppings, it is where we create all sorts of decorations for industrial use.
Our philosophy is to create partnerships with our clients and drives us to come together and think of the best ingredients and combinations, bringing the best out of each product that will eventually reach the market.
Finasucre is at the head of the Iscal Group; this Belgian holding company participates in many food industry projects in Belgium, Europe, and the world.
The past at the service of the future
The history of the Iscal group dates back to the mid-19th century. It is traced back to 1868, when the Moerbeke sugar factory was founded, to the North of Ghent. Over the years, the group grew and positioned itself as a major actor of the Belgian sugar industry.
