EU Sugar Reform puts farmers at risk

According to the new report by the FairTrade Foundation, the Crash Report, the reform of the European Union sugar market will put the livelihoods of farmers in developing countries at risk. Furthermore, according to the UK’s Department for International Development’s (DFID’s) research, the end of the beet sugar quota could push 200,000 people in developing countries into poverty by 2020. Small-scale sugar cane farmers in African, Caribbean and Pacific (APC) and Least Developed Countries (LDC) are expected to be the worst hit by the EU decision to lift the cap on EU sugar beet production by 2017. The global sugar price has halved in the last three years alone, evidence of a more long term slump in the market.
