About us

The BBRO is a non-profit making company set-up jointly by British Sugar plc (BS) and the National Farmers' Union (NFU). It has a team of scientists and field trials operators that work hard to conduct robust research projects and deliver technical information through a wide range of knowledge exchange activities e.g. technical publication, summer open days, winter conferences, demonstration farm events and a range of social media activities.  

The BBRO Executive Board provides guidance on the strategic direction of the organisation and its members are responsible for setting the levy.  Working alongside this, the Stakeholder Committee provides guidance on future industry priorities and oversees BBRO’s funded programme of research and knowledge exchange activities. 

To ensure BBRO’s research programme remains aligned with the industry needs we welcome feedback or comments on any of our current activities or suggestions for new work that will help to deliver our strategic objectives.  You can contact us via email at info@bbro.co.uk

Centrum

Car Parking Instructions:

Where possible inform BBRO of your visit prior to arrival so a car parking space can be allocated in advance.
Visitors parking for less than two hours may park in the short stay carpark in front of the main entrance. Visitors wishing to stay longer than two hours, must park in the pre-pay, pay and display area (unless previously agreed).

Vehicle registration numbers are to be given to the receptionist on arrival (or phoned through to BBRO prior to parking). The car parks are monitored, and parking tickets will be issued if visitors are not parked in accordance to site rules, which are clearly sign posted around the parking area. There are electric car charging facilities and visitors can park in the bay for the duration of their vehicle charging, thereafter the vehicle must be moved to an appropriate parking space. Please contact reception if you require further details. Vehicles are left at the owners’ risk.

BBRO Plant Clinic

Easy access to support for all sugar beet growers

 Plant clinic samples can continue to be dropped off at the main entrance where a member of BBRO staff will collect them.  Please ensure you complete the required form (available via the Research page) with any samples submitted.
