The Beet Brief, written by our Commercial Analyst Arthur Marshall provides a monthly run down of the latest from the sugar market and what it means for UK sugar beet production.
Highlights from the May 2020 issue:
- The average EU white sugar price in March 2020 was €375/t, €1/t off triggering a 1-year contract bonus
- Falling spot prices could dampen further upward movement in EU average prices
- Dry weather conditions across Europe caused concerns for emergence, although some have eased
