Our Refineries

Making Life Sweeter Everyday

Our story goes back to 1965 when we began the operation with our primary refinery in Batu Tiga, Shah Alam, which had grown over the decades together with the brand. In 1973, Gula Padang Terap (GPT) was incorporated as a public company. In 2019, Central Sugars Refinery Sdn. Bhd. We successfully acquired Gula Padang Terap Berhad (GPT), now known as Central Sugars Refinery (Padang Terap) Sdn Bhd.

Discover the specialities of each refinery below and learn how they contribute to the CSR brand in their own ways.

CSR Batu Tiga Where It All Began

CSR’s first sugar refinery in Batu Tiga, Shah Alam, has grown considerably since it opened its doors in 1965. It now produces the finest and highest quality sugar for consumers, retailers, food service distribution, food manufacturers, culinary professionals and speciality markets. Its location in the central region of Malaysia allows its products to reach across the nation and international markets through efficient delivery access to distribution centres, enabling just-in-time delivery for industrial customers and on-time technical support should the need arise.

The refinery runs its daily operations in sugar production with the help of hundreds of staff members. The administration and R&D departments support this new product development and quality improvement focus. By adopting the latest technologies and equipment in sugar refining, the Batu Tiga refinery produces about 2,000 metric tons of sugar daily to meet Malaysia’s sugar needs and beyond.

CSR Padang Terap, The Home of Better Brown

Our Padang Terap refinery is best known for producing our signature Better Brown sugar. This is our healthier sugar option produced through state-of-the-art technology and our commitment towards innovation to promote a healthier lifestyle.

In addition to Better Brown sugar, the Padang Terap refinery is dedicated to developing and producing a premium alternative sugar known as enzyme-free. We are proud to say that CSR Padang Terap is the only sugar refinery in Malaysia to produce this particular category of sugar product, making it a key player in the nation’s sugar industry and an important asset to the CSR brand.

Every staff member’s dedication and hard work has allowed CSR Padang Terap to adequately meet the demands of the industry for Better Brown sugar and enzyme-free white sugar, paving the way towards a bigger and brighter future for the refinery.
