Early but staggered start to the beet campaign
The sugar beet campaign will have a staggered start this year. The sugar factories will start production on 6 September in Dinteloord and on 10 September in Anklam and Groningen. Logistically, a staggered start to the campaign is better because the yield forecasts differ significantly from region to region. The campaign has started relatively early because of the low sugar stocks in the silos. New sugar will now be available when it is needed. The campaign will last for about 19 weeks.
