Sugar Beet fuels the European bio economy (food, feed, biofuels, biogas, bio products)
Sugar Beet,a model of sustainability
Sugar Beet, a local production which supports rural economy
The EU Beet Sugar Sustainability Partnership (EU BSSP) has announced the launch of its first joint initiative on sustainability throughout the sector.
We would like to introduce the work of the EU Beet Sugar Sustainability Partnership. Formed in 2013 as a coalition between EU beet growers (represented by CIBE), sugar producers (CEFS) and trade unions in the food and agriculture sectors (EFFAT), the Partnership exists to demonstrate sustainability throughout the beet sugar industry in the region.
The 300,000 sugar beet growers represented by CIBE produce on average just under 20 million tonnes of white sugar equivalent per year from around 2 million hectares, intended mainly for the 600 million inhabitants of the CIBE member countries.
SUGAR BEET AND BIOECONOMY VALUE CHAIN
Sugar Beet contributes every year to the EU Bioeconomy with:
« A national interprofessional agreement and a standard contract: yes but with appropriate content! »
The Polish sugar beet Association KZPBC organised a Conference in Poznan, Poland, regarding the perspectives of sugar beet.
Throughtout the year, CIBE organise meetings, such as General Assembly or Congress which allow to share information between its Members and discuss several topics.
CIBE's Staff also attends several external events.
