Sugar

Sugar revenues amounted to EUR57m (up by 3% y-o-y) on improvement of realized prices to EUR354 per t compared to EUR329 per t a year ago. This lead to the EBITDA increasing to EUR8.1m in 1H20 from EUR4.0m in 1H19.

attle Farming

Slightly higher revenues of the Cattle Farming segment (EUR18m in 1H20 versus EUR17m in 1H19) were driven by higher milk prices offsetting lower sale volumes. EBITDA margin improved to 22% in 1H20 from 21% in 1H19.
