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 Congress hosted contributions from numerous Guests from the European Union Institutions, Research Institutes along with the latest news and insights from CIBE Members.
From the 3rd to the 6th of June 2015 CIBE Members and their guests will gather to discuss and exchange on the future of the sector in the EU and worldwide.
