We can’t fight water scarcity alone:
this affects us all
Water is essential, agri-food businesses such as our own, understand the important role of this vital resource and we are determined to use it appropriately. From growing the sugar beet and cane in fields, through to operational processes at our factories, water is essential.
Whilst we have come some way in reducing the use of this resource, there is always more we can do to reduce our environmental footprint, which is why we launched 'The Innovate Irrigation Challenge' to draw on ideas from across the globe. The question we posed with this Challenge was:
“How do you stop irrigation water losses (evaporation/leaks, etc.) in agriculture?”
We are delighted with the level of interest in the Challenge; receiving over 90 registrations and a further 28 submissions from individuals and teams across the world.
