EU Sugar Deal Set to Throw 200,000 Farmers in Africa, the Caribbean Into Poverty.

A choice to lift a top on European sugar beet generation by 2017 is undermining to toss a huge number of sugar stick ranchers in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific into destitution.


The choice by the European Union to lift the top on sugar beet generation by 2017, will mean little scale sugar stick agriculturists in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (APC) and Least Developed Countries (LDC) — including previous British states such as Jamaica — will battle to compete with European sugar beet ranchers, who get subsidies from the EU.
