PARIS (Reuters) – A majority of members of Tereos’ renewed supervisory board support the existing company strategy, the French sugar maker said on Wednesday after being challenged by cooperative members concerned by a plunge in profit.

“The regional delegates elected their supervisory board, the majority of whose members, 17 out of 24, support the strategy decided by the previous board and implemented by management,” it said in a statement.

The cooperative held a general meeting in northern France on Wednesday.
