Adapt wins British Sugar Innovation Project
The Adapt Low Carbon Group, an innovation management consultancy and investor, has secured a resource efficiency project with British Sugar – the UK’s leading sugar supplier.
Adapt, part of the University of East Anglia, will research and advise British Sugar on opportunities for developing new products and technologies that could help future-proof the business. Adapt will also seek to identify ways to maximise British Sugar’s factory processing efficiency and capacity, and improve its carbon and water footprints.
A key element of this will be finding sustainable solutions that will help British Sugar stay abreast of market challenges as well as responding proactively to changes in production and export quotas for sugar and cereal-based sweeteners from 2017.
