TTCS, the leading producer of refined sugar

With refined sugar as its key product, Thanh Thanh Cong – Bien Hoa Sugar Joint Stock Company (TTCS) has exported sugar to Singapore, the Philippines, Myanmar, China and Middle East countries. 
Established in 1995, TTCS now is a member company of TTC Group which was formerly the Bourbon Tay Ninh Joint Stock Company, a joint venture between the Bourbon Group of France and Sugar Corporation II and Tay Ninh Sugar Company. The company was previously known as Thanh Thanh Cong Tay Ninh Joint Stock Company, but changed its name to Thanh Thanh Cong - Bien Hoa Joint Stock Company in November 2017.

TTCS has over the years made intensive investment in research and development, turning out new product lines, including golden brown sugar, brown sugar and liquid sugar. It has also developed byproducts from sugar processing, including unsweetened Miaqua bottled water with the fragrant smell of sugarcane. The company plans to develop products from bagasse and molasses in the near future.

TTCS is also Vietnam’s first producer of organic sugar, which is qualified for European and US standards (EC 834/2007 and USDA-NOP, respectively).

TTCS holds a major share of the domestic market, particularly in the southeastern provinces and Ho Chi Minh City.
The company has worked with the Tay Ninh Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to develop sugarcane-growing areas with complete irrigation systems and mechanized farming. So far, three 20-hectare cane fields have been built in the communes of Tra Vong (Tan Bien district), Cau Khoi (Duong Minh Chau district) and Long Phuoc (Ben Cau district).

TTCS is planning to build material input growing zones with a total area of 30,000 hectares in Tay Ninh and Gia Lai provinces and is expecting to produce annually about 2.3 million tons of sugarcane.  It has also studied and developed cane varieties with a high yield and quality to reach a productivity of at least 100 tons/hectare.

The company has applied technology to mechanize sugarcane growing and improve production lines to produce quality products that meet the diverse demands of customers.
