RES is the leading and world-class energy farmer, which produces energy for people (sugar), household energy (co-generation) and energy for cars (E10 bio-fuel).
Although RES is predominantly a sugar company, ethyl alcohol is becoming a viable alternative revenue stream. We ventured into ethanol when the company acquired Bayside Distillers which was later relocated to Southgate in Durban and renamed Royal Swazi Distillers (RSD). Since then our ethanol division has grown from strength to strength to become a major player in the international ethanol market without losing its regional relevance. Our plant is engineered to produce superior quality extra neutral ethyl alcohol for high value application.
