All recent news from British Sugar

Yesterday evening, 19th December, we suffered a significant plant failure at our Cantley factory. Importantly, we can confirm that nobody was injured and we have temporarily suspended processing sugar beet at this site.
We are working with our agricultural and operational teams and growers to ensure that we minimise disruption as best we can to our local growers and hauliers who supply the Cantley factory. Sugar beet will be diverted and processed at our factories at Bury St Edmunds and Wissington. This incident does not impact our commercial customers.
In the meantime, we are undertaking a thorough investigation to identify the cause of the incident and assess the extent of the damage before commenting further.
