8 February 2018 - Royal Cosun reports a higher turnover and a higher profit for 2017 in comparison with 2016. All business groups in the Cosun portfolio contributed to the group’s results. The improvement on 2016 was due chiefly to Suiker Unie benefiting from firmer sugar prices in the first half of the financial year. The cooperative pays €45.62 per tonne of quota beet of average quality supplied during the 2017 campaign (2016: €44.15 per tonne). The volume of beet receiving this price rose to 6.8 million tonnes (2016: 5.0 million tonnes). Read more.
