The end of the European quota system is soon to come and the environmental restrictions are getting more complex. In this strongly evolving context, Betteravenir will bring together both the agricultural and agroindustrial sectors, to give practical solutions for the future. The event will take place the 26th and 27th of October in Moyvillers, in the Oise region, in France.
The Commission has today hosted a Joint Meeting of the Civil Dialogue Group and the Sugar Expert Group, bringing together stakeholders and Member State officials to discuss the opportunities and challenges from the abolition of the EU sugar quota regime at the end of September 2017.
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.
