Welcome to Hindustan Sugars Limited

Sugar industry in India is the second largest agro based industry located in the rural India. The Indian sugar industry is a key driver of rural development, supporting India's economic growth. About 50 million sugarcane farmers, their dependents and a large mass of agricultural labourer are involved in sugarcane cultivation, harvesting and ancillary activities, comprising 7.5% of the rural population.

Besides, around 1 million skilled and semi-skilled workers, mostly from the rural areas are engaged in the sugar industry. Along with sugar, by-products like fuel ethanol and power have provided new horizons for the sector. The sector today has transformational opportunities that would enable it not only to continue to service the domestic and overseas markets but also emerge as a significant carbon credit and power producer and support an ethanol blending programme of E10 and beyond.
