Nordzucker: 2021/22 campaign successfully completed

Sufficient and well-distributed rainfall during the summer in almost all European growing regions led to above-average beet and sugar yields (12.8 tonnes of sugar per hectare). Germany even achieved one of the highest sugar yields ever, with an average of almost 80 tonnes of beet per hectare (73 tonnes in the 5-year average) and a sugar content of about 18 percent, with 14.2 tonnes of sugar per hectare (13.3 tonnes). In addition to the good yields, higher sugar prices will have a positive impact on the beet prices of the contracts with a variable price model. "The variable sugar beet contracts with our growers will achieve the best prices since the end of the sugar market regime and noticeably higher prices than in the fixed price model," emphasises Dr Lars Gorissen, CEO. "The competitiveness and attractive role of sugar beet in agricultural crop rotation is thus confirmed".
