British Sugar confirms additional support to growers

22 March 2024

Attributable to Dan Green, Agriculture Director, British Sugar:

“We are fully committed to helping growers bring in their crop to our factories and have recently announced additional support measures for Wissington and Bury growers to get their beet into either Cantley or Newark, now that Bury and Wissington’s Campaigns have finished.

“Following discussions with NFU Sugar, British Sugar is meeting 75% of the additional costs for those Bury and Wissington growers still to lift and deliver, to divert their beet to Cantley or Newark. In addition to this, we are also hiring an additional boiler at Cantley to increase throughput at that factory. This coupled with the actions we’ve taken to deliberately slow down throughput at our factories, extending Campaign by over 50 days, totals a multi-million-pound commitment by us in support of our growers.

“With Cantley and Newark due to finish their Campaigns in early April, we continue to work together with our growers, harvesters and hauliers to bring the 2023/24 Campaign to a close.”
