Paul Fishpool - Maximising Efficiency within the UK Sugar Beet Industry Supply Chain
I live in Cambridgeshire and work for British Sugar, predominately in East Anglia, where I am Crop Production and Logistics Manager. My interest in agriculture has been encouraged and inspired by friends and family in Herefordshire where I grew up, with my professional skills developed through a degree at Harper Adams and sixteen years working at British Sugar. During my career I have had the opportunity to spend some time working in China, which has inspired me to further my knowledge of agricultural practices in different countries. I am currently involved with and manage the production of over 10000 acres of Sugar Beet and co-ordinate the harvesting and haulage logistics of over 1.5 million tonnes. Away from work I enjoy playing sport, including cricket, shooting and cycling, and spending time with my family.
