In order to streamline the monitoring of the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on the EU sugar and ethanol markets, CIBE is establishing a regular short market report.
Here the newest update:
Nature and agriculture are intrinsically linked and reinforce each other’s well-being. The agricultural community cannot prosper and deliver quality food if biodiversity is lost, if soils erode and deteriorate and if they suffer the direct consequences of climate change, such as drought for example.
The EU Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategy are short of solutions on:
-> the increasing gap between the rapid loss of PPPs and the availability/cost of new tools like NBTs and IPM
-> the increasing burdens for EU growers
-> the lack of a level playing field with 3rd countries.
Targets are not solutions!

CIBE is part of Agriculture & Progress, a platform for sustainable crop production and plant protection techniques.
CIBE takes part in the AgroCycle project, a Sino-EU collaborative research venture, funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme to create a protocol for the implementation of the 'circular economy' across the agri-food sector.
SUGAR BEET AND SUSTAINABILITY
In October 2013, the European Beet Growers (CIBE), sugar producers (CEFS) and trade unions of the food and agriculture sector (EFFAT) have formalised a landmark agreement to jointly highlight and report on representative Good Practices of sustainable production of beet sugar in the EU.
