    EU levy refund secured for British beet sugar industry


    Sugar beet growers are collectively owed millions of pounds in overpaid levies, after a Court of Justice of the European Union ruling confirmed that growers were historically overcharged by the EU Commission using a ‘flawed method’ for calculating the now discontinued levy.

    Growers of sugar beet during 1999 and 2000 are entitled to a repayment of both the overpayment, and the interest accrued.

    Growers will receive a form from British Sugar to fill out in order to receive their repayment. Any grower who believes they are entitled to a refund and does not receive a letter is urged to contact the helpline British Sugar has set up on 01733 422153 in order to apply for the repayment. The refund, over £6 million in total, is split roughly equally between growers and British Sugar.
