Going Global with Sugar Beet

4th September 2017

Building on the continuing success of the European Sugar Beet Project, SAI Platform is responding to its members’ needs by expanding the scope of sugar engagement to include sugar beet and cane in the United States and Canada, as well as sugar beet in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus (R.U.B).

Sugar Beet Project Expansion

As a result of a strong member interest, SAI Platform is holding a kick-off meeting for the R.U.B. Sugar Beet Project in September. The focus is to better understand the regional challenges and barriers to sustainable agriculture, as well as to demonstrate the value of the Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA) with growers directly.

Additionally, the foundations for similar projects are being laid with member companies and sister-organisations in North America and Mexico for sugar cane, and for sugar beet in Canada and the United States. This autumn will see a clear vision with projected outcomes regarding these crop areas, starting with the Sweetener Users Association (cane and beet), Field to Market(sugar beet) in Canada and the USA and Bonsucro (cane).
