Edward Billington and Son began trading tea and coffee across the oceans in 1858 and started to import sugar soon after. It was in 1977 that Billington’s began to import sugar of the highest quality – the Mauritian unrefined brown sugars for which we are famous today. To the present day and Billington’s is now part of The Associated British Foods Group, joining The Silver Spoon Company in 2004.
Billington's craft their sugars with precision, time and care. The skill is in stopping the process at exactly the right time, to create the many different types, flavours and colours that make up the full spectrum of sugar.
