Making Bonsucro-related claims

The Bonsucro logo promotes sustainability in sugarcane. On pack it helps to draw consumers’ attention to your sustainability credentials. Off pack, it helps show your suppliers and clients that you are part of the global community dedicated to accelerating the sustainable production and uses of sugarcane.

A benefit of Bonsucro membership is the ability to make claims about sustainability in your sugarcane supply chain and use the Bonsucro logo. We have a selection of logos that you can use on products, websites, banners, sustainability reports. etc.

Our Certified Sustainable Sugarcane seal is designed to help with your consumer messaging. It is exclusively for physical products that contain a minimum is 95% Bonsucro certified sugarcane. We have approved the logo on bars of chocolate, bottles of rum, bags of sugar, packaging made from bioplastic with polymers derived from sugarcane and more.
