New Liquid Sugar Plant in Mexico

The plant of the Mexican company Sucroliq in Irapuato , Guanajuato , is the only one of its kind worldwide to fully automate all its processes, with which it generates around 150 thousand liters of liquid sugar a day.  To achieve this, the plant implemented Industry leading technology to  convert granular sugar into liquid sugar for the food industry, and is located within the plant that Danone has in Irapuato.  “The Industry 4.0 technology installed by Siemens offers levels of efficiency and control of the processes that no sugar factory has in the country.”

Although Sucroliq already had plants in Amecameca and Monterrey, the one in Irapuato was fully automated two years ago.  The liquid sugar generated is directly fed into the production lines of the companies that buy their product, as is the case of Danone in Irapuato. The main technology used in this plant, whose total investment was 7.5 million dollars, was done due to the fact that the food industry demands high quality standards.
