Competing in a global marketplace

Sugar types - Making sense of sugar


Operating in a diverse and continually changing environment presents many opportunities and challenges. The final round of changes to the European Union (EU) sugar regime in 2017 was just one example. These changes abolished production quotas, removed minimum beet prices and eliminated the artificial distinction between sugar sold for food and industrial applications in the EU.

Such a dynamic market is increasing the pressure on the competitiveness of the total EU sugar supply chain. Growers, processors, haulage companies and other key stakeholders will all need to ensure their individual competitiveness so that the UK beet sugar industry can continue competing as a whole.
