2023-24 Campaign End Dates

22 February 2024

As we look towards the end of the 2023-24 sugar beet campaign, we continue to share our sincere thanks with all our growers, contractors, hauliers and partners across the homegrown sugar industry for their hard work over recent months.

Following the recent wet weather and feedback from growers, we want to provide as much support as possible for growers delivering their crop into their contracted factory.

Given the wet conditions, we will be reducing slice rates at our Bury St Edmunds, Cantley and Wissington factories for the next week. This will support increasing the campaign length, to allow growers to deliver to their contracted factory. We will continue to maximise the slice rate at Newark with available beet supply.

The new expected campaign end dates for each site are as follows:

  • Bury St Edmunds: 9th March
  • Wissington: 17th March
  • Cantley and Newark - early April

Once again, we thank all our industry partners for their continued persistence and support in keeping the factories supplied, and encourage growers and hauliers to keep in touch with their British Sugar Account Manager if they are experiencing any difficulties.

We wish everyone across the industry all the best for the final weeks of campaign.
