European Union Governments on 3 March 2006 agreed on a European Commission proposal for a one-year cut of 2.5 million tonnes (13.6 percent) in sugar, isoglucose and inulin syrup production. This one-off reduction was necessary to ensure that the newly-reformed sugar regime would get underway without heavy surpluses undermining market balance.
