The General Assembly of the Committee of European Sugar Users (CIUS) has re-elected Mr. Yuriy Sharanov from Mars Wrigley as President and Mr. Torben Vestergaard Nielsen from Orkla as Vice President, both for a two-year term. Muriel Korter, who has served as CIUS Director General for the past 15 years, has stepped down from her position and will now take on the role of Treasurer for a two-year term. The CIUS General Assembly appointed Mayssa Vande Vyvre as the new Director General. Following his re-election, Sharanov acknowledged the ongoing challenges faced by European sugar users. He highlighted the EU’s structural sugar deficit and the need for more access to imports to help Europe overcome sugar shortages. Sharanov criticized the EU’s restrictive sugar import policies, which include high tariffs and quotas that hinder access to white quality sugar. CIUS remains committed to advocating for policy changes that will alleviate supply constraints and support the long-term sustainability of the European sugar market. “And this,” Sharanov emphasized, “is for the benefit of all.”
