Wholesaler August Töpfer & Co. offers sugar cubes in both conventional and organic quality. What’s more, the range includes a speciality from Mauritius: irregular organic cane sugar cubes.
The term “sugar cubes” already reveals the fact that this sugar variety is distinguished by its special shape. Sugar cubes are typically quadratic in shape and are also known as lump sugar. The sugar product is made from refined white sugar with a particularly high degree of purity. Alternatives made from brown cane sugar are also available in the wholesale trade.
The director of an Austrian sugar refinery invented sugar cubes in the 19th century. Prior to this invention, sugar was available in the form of sugar loaves, whose weight of up to 150 kilograms was particularly cumbersome. The new and more practical type of sugar quickly spread beyond the country’s borders and also established itself in other regions. Sugar cubes were prevalent until the 1990s and represented the most common form in which sugar was offered. Although alternatives have meanwhile replaced this type of sugar in many areas, it is still in use to this day. Organic sugar cubes are characterised by their particularly high quality and compliance with the criteria for the organic label.
As a traditional wholesale distributor, we adjust our product range according to customer wishes. This includes the continuous expansion of our organic range. Besides high-quality organic sugar cubes, we offer Organic Fairtrade sugar as well as Demeter-certified sugar . Moreover, our product range encompasses Cane sugar, Icing sugar, Coconut sugar and cane sugar cubes in organic quality.
At wholesaler August Töpfer & Co., you can order a speciality from our factory in Mauritius in addition to classic white organic sugar cubes. This is where we produce irregular cane sugar cubes with their distinctive brown colour.
