The British Sugar Corporation was a company that was formed in 1936, when the British parliament nationalised the entire sugar beet crop processing industry, under the banner of British Sugar Corporation. At this time there were 13 separate companies with 18 factories across the country.

In 1972 it began selling its sugar products under the name of Silver Spoon.

British Sugar plc is now a subsidiary of Associated British Foods and the sole British producer of sugar from sugar beet.
