Robert Law, vice-chairman of NFU Sugar, has urged sugar beet growers to stand united in their fight to achieve “a fair and reasonable price” for their crops.

Growers have been contacted direct by British Sugar, despite ongoing negotiations.

He said: “If growers sign contracts for a price which is not supported by the NFU, it makes further negotiation all but impossible this year.”
