Clawback letter May 2013

The text below is from a letter sent this week to those growers due a final payments for ICE or surplus production:


Dear Sir/Madam

2012/13 Campaign Beet Price 

Following finalisation of the delivered tonneages for the campaign, we would like to confirm the final campaign payment due for the 2012/13 crop. 

This payment factors in the amount of crop supplied for Industrial Contract Entitlement (ICE) and additional surplus beet that has been used to meet this year’s quota.

As crop used for quota attracts a higher rate per tonne, the rate paid for ICE and surplus beet used to meet quota will be enhanced, and the average prices increased by:

  • £0.419 increase in the ICE price, giving a revised overall price of £26.919/adjusted tonne 
  • £1.030 increase in the surplus beet price, giving a revised price of £26.030/adjusted tonne 

The enclosed invoice gives details of these additional payments.

If you have any questions relating to this payment, please contact the Agriculture Helpdesk on 0870 2402314.

Colm McKay, British Sugar Agriculture Director
William Martin, NFU Sugar Board Chairman
