Thousands of Cambodian farmers claim they are losing their land and livelihoods to big sugar plantations, some of which are directly supplying the EU through companies including Tate & Lyle. The company has imported large volumes of sugar from Cambodia, where its supplier is accused of using child labour and being complicit in expropriating land and inflicting violence on local people, the Guardian can reveal. Tate & Lyle denies any human rights abuses.
