Locations Welcome to Könnern

The sugar factory in Könnern is the largest site of Pfeifer & Langen in Germany. It was built from scratch in 1992 and became one of the most modern facilities a year later.

Combining modern technology with a passion for sugar

At our Könnern location, we process over two million tons of sugar beets annually to produce granulated sugar and refined sugar for the industry and trade, as well as animal feed. Under the brand Diamant, we produce approximately 50 different products, which are packaged on-site in various sizes.

Our production

In production, we have a focus on the environment: the sugar factory does not require any external water for production but solely uses water from the sugar beet. In terms of primary energy consumption, it has been one of the most economical in Europe. We are currently investing in a complete switch to renewable energies. A biogas plant for the utilization of beet pulp is also being planned.
