Created in 2000 from the merger of three agricultural sugar cooperatives and a distillery, Cristal Union has remained faithful to its founding cooperative values. Today, it has 8 sugar mills and 3 distilleries spread throughout northeastern France, producing and marketing sugar, alcohol and bioethanol. Its organization is based on a unique cooperative model that guarantees a strong exchange and unity between its cooperators and its Board of Directors.
In 2019, the Group was the first to invest in the creation of a French organic beet sugar sector, in order to meet consumer expectations, despite the complexity and demands of this crop.
The Fair For Life project thus aims to support the sustainable development of organic beet by providing special assistance to its cooperators, thanks to the development fund set up.

Née en 2000 de la fusion de trois coopératives agricoles sucrières et d'une distillerie, Cristal Union est restée fidèle à ses valeurs coopératives fondatrices, qui garantie une unité forte entre ses coopérateurs et son Conseil d’Administration. Elle comptabilise aujourd’hui 8 sucreries et 3 distilleries réparties dans le nord-est de la France, afin de produire et de commercialiser du sucre, de l’alcool et du bioéthanol. En 2019, le Groupe a été le premier à investir dans la création d’une filière Française de sucre de betterave bio, afin de répondre aux attentes des consommateurs, et cela malgré la complexité et l’exigence de cette culture.
Le projet de Commerce Equitable Fair For Life a ainsi pour objectif de soutenir un développement durable de la betterave bio en apportant une aide particulière à ses coopérateurs, grâce au fonds de développement mis en place.
