Not the 2020 we anticipated

 
 
Nothing has shaken up the commodity markets like the covid-19 outbreak in a very long time. Falling food and fuel demand from the pandemic has led to weakening prices across the complex, as well as logistical complications.
 
As the pandemic continues, the impact on consumption and overall uncertainty ahead is a threat to European players. It’s time to step back and assess the new outlook for the EU sugar market.
 
At a critical time, join us for the S&P Global Platts online European Sugar event. A part of the thought leadership series on Platts LIVE, this important discussion will address how the EU sugar supply chain is adapting in this time of great uncertainty.
