Abstract

The sugar industry has experienced more change in the past decade than in the previous two, and will see more in the next decade than in the previous three.

In a rapidly changing world, an increasingly innovative approach to industry research and development is needed to underpin the technical and operational innovation necessary to sustain the industry's international competitiveness and improve its environmental management.

The combined effects of the recent slump in world raw sugar prices and episodic disruptions of weather and crop disease threaten the industry's emergent research and development base at a time of heightened need.
