Beet factory start dates

With the Bury St Edmunds and Wissington sugar beet factories scheduled to open on the 26th September for the 2018/19 harvesting campaign, British sugar has also announced that the Newark factory campaign start date is 2nd October, and Cantley follows on the 10th October.

British Sugar agriculture director, Colm McKay said: “We’re pleased to announce the sugar beet campaign start dates. The dates are aimed at striking a balance between supplying our customers with a quality product, allowing time for the crop to mature, and giving growers and hauliers time to plan their harvesting and delivery schedules.”
