We are the oldest sugar mill in Argentina

The Ingenio San Isidro was founded in 1760 by the royal militia colonel Juan Adrián Fernández Cornejo, who introduced the sugar cane from Peru, installing its first mill and giving rise to the oldest sugar mill in Argentina.

Sugar production in the early days was rustic. It was obtained from boiled broth crystallization of sugar cane juice and the mill was moved by animal power.

The sugar complex has 11 thousand land hectares, of which 3,500 are for sugar cane production and the rest is natural forest and land suitable for the development of livestock projects.

The sugar factory has an installed capacity to process between 3,600 to 4,000 tons of cane per day, with a daily production of 360 to 400 tons of sugar.

The mill has additionally an ethylic and anhydrous alcohol distillery with a production capacity of 60,000 liters per day. It also has a tank farm for storage of 8,000,000 liters of alcohol.
