THE CST SUGAR BRAND
Since 2009, CST has marketed its sugar products under the brand name Princesse Tatie. This mass-produced ready-to-eat sugar is put in packages tailored to consumer needs.
CST already uses bagasse as a source of power, particularly to fuel plant heaters and a number of irrigation pumps. It has been working on further leveraging this natural resource as a source of power so as to bring electric power to its entire irrigation system and export part of it to the Chadian electric grid.
