Australian minister pushes sugar imports at Tate & Lyle factory
Tuesday, January 24, 2023
Australia’s agricultural minister has been touring the UK and Europe to promote export trade following the UK-Australia free-trade deal. The trade deal has been criticised by the UK farming industry and in November 2022, former Defra secretary George Eustice told the House of Commons it was “not actually a very good deal for the UK”. Senator Murray Watt visited the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery in London on 17 January as part of the trip. Mr Watt said Australia wanted to get more sugar into the UK as quickly as possible and companies such as Tate & Lyle were keen to see that product coming in as well. A spokesperson for Tate & Lyle said the sustainability credentials of Australian sugar could offset the high cost, adding that a first cargo could arrive before the summer.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
