29th International Sugar Organization Seminar

Coronavirus and Climate Change: Short and Long Term Challenge


Dear Colleagues and Friends,

As you can probably imagine, putting together this year’s 29th ISO International Seminar has been a daunting challenge given the circumstances under the COVID pandemic. We believe we have set a complete agenda with highly qualified speakers that will give you valuable insights into the main priorities of our sector and enrich your decision-making as you face the challenges ahead.

For us it is very important to have all of our friends who have participated year after year, as gathering the “world sugar family” is something that makes this event particularly special, and as such are offering a special rate of £349 [€399/US$449] for those who have attended in prior years and to encourage all to register for this year’s Seminar. We trust this will motivate many of you to be a part of this event which will feature live presentations and discussion combined with online interventions from renowned experts in a seamless virtual platform.

This year’s Chairman will be Dr. Fred Zeller, Executive Director of VSZ, the South German Sugar Beet Growers Association, who has a distinguished career in our sector. Dr Zeller has a deep grasp of the key issues affecting sugar at all levels and is highly respected worldwide, but perhaps his greatest asset is his people skills which have gained him the respect of colleagues and foes alike. His comprehensive knowledge of sugar makes him uniquely qualified to address this year’s complex topics and enrich our understanding of how we can successfully tackle the challenges ahead.
