The South African sugar industry consistently ranks in the top 15 out of approximately 120 sugar-producing countries worldwide. With the two provinces as sugar producers (namely Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal), the sugar industry as a whole makes a positive difference to the lives of more than a million people and is a catalyst to economic growth and development for our country and its future. It is a diverse industry, combining the agricultural activities of sugarcane cultivation with the manufacture of raw and refined sugar, syrups, specialised sugar by-products and co-products. In line with developments in the global sugar sector, it has the potential to be a producer of:
  • Renewable energy
  • Bio-fuels
  • Bio-plastics
The Royal Shaka Property Group’s sugar operations are largely within the rural areas and surrounding towns of the KwaDukuza Municipality, qualifying as a feeder to local employment and economic opportunities in this area.


Sugar Company

The Gledhow Sugar Mill has a long and proud history of supplying the Southern African market with quality sugar and sugar by-products, having first commenced operations in 1912. In 2009, the Gledhow Sugar Company (Pty) Ltd was founded with the acquisition of the Gledhow Sugar Mill at KwaDukuza. The consortium of shareholders includes a BBBEE Partnership, The Gledhow Grower’s Share Trust (made up of all the growers in the area) and corporate business.
