The Essentials

This monthly forecast service provides visibility on future EU sugar and isoglucose production, demand, trade and prices by member state. It gives a lead indicator of farmers’ planting intentions by examining future returns of beet vs alternative crops for each factory location. By estimating processing costs by factory, we are also able to generate beet supply prices by factory. This helps inform our view of production and EU sugar prices going forward.

The EU Sugar Market Monitor is firmly established as the industry benchmark and is subscribed to by most of the leading sugar players in Europe.
