Along with sugar cane, sugar beet is one of the two principal sources of sucrose used around the world. In temperate climates, the seeds are sown in March and the harvest (known as the campaign) begins in September.
In the production of sugar beet, Beghin Say involves about 12,000 French farmers from the Tereos Agricultural Cooperative.
Tereos is committed to introducing efficient and sustainable farming practices by adhering to stringent standards, such as those of the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative. In order to protect the environment, its sugar production uses almost half of the water it used to use, corresponding to the annual consumption of about 80 000 people.
Once sugar is extracted, beet pulp is used as a feed component and natural fertilizer.
