Sugar is a strategic product. Beet sugar was “invented” by the continental blockade. The entire history of European sugar revolves around the same words: research and development, efficiency and anticipation. The European Green Deal opens the way to an economy combining sustainability, circularity and innovation, with the objective of creating a competitive ecology. At CEFS, we support this project.

CEFS DG, Marie-Christine Ribera, further develops her views in her new article entitled “Sugar and the European Green Deal: for a competitive ecology”.
