The industry is a highly regulated oligopoly, dominated by two producers. British Sugar, a beet refiner, is the largest company in the industry and processes all of the sugar beet grown in the United Kingdom. Since Tate & Lyle sold its UK sugar refineries to the ASR Group in October 2010, the latter's subsidiary, T&L Sugars, has been the only other dominant producer.

British Sugar, which refines sugar beet grown in the United Kingdom, has three of its refineries in the East of England and one in the East Midlands, since these are the areas where most sugar beet is grown. This means that the sugar beet delivered to its facilities travels an average of just 28 miles, thus reducing the amount of fuel that farmers use transporting it.

T&L Sugars has its two factories in London on the banks of the Thames. Its facilities have been refining sugar there since the end of the 19th century, supported by the fact that raw cane sugar can be delivered directly to the factory via the Thames.
