This study provides information designed to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the sugar manufacturing sector. The aim of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. Top-down and bottom-up analyses of the sugar manufacturing sector in the EU28 covered in the study show that the European Federation of Food, Agriculture and Tourism (EFFAT), on the employees’ side, and the European Association of Sugar Manufacturers (CEFS), on the employers’ side, are the most important European-level social partner organisations in the sector and, also, the only social partners in the European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the sugar sector.
