Thames Refinery in London is the largest sugar refinery in the EU and one of the largest in the world, with a capacity of 1.2million tonnes per annum. The refinery first started operating in 1878, when it was opened by Henry Tate. Today, the refinery receives cargoes of raw cane sugar from tropical countries around the world, which are unloaded directly from vessels that arrive alongside the refinery at our berth on the River Thames.
