India’s sugar production higher this season due to early start – ISMA


India’s sugar production in the current crushing season that started early had touched 110.9 lakh tons by January 15, up 7.08 lakh tons from the same day last year, the Indian Sugar Mills Association said.

It said in a statement that sugar production was higher despite lower availability of sugarcane because some 488 mills had started cane-crushing operations earlier than usual.

Sugar production in Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra was higher by 3.4 lakh tons, 2 lakh tons and 1 lakh tons respectively, the statement said, adding most of the sugar mills in Maharashtra in Maharashtra would close earlier this year because of lower sugarcane production in the state.

ISMA said suhar mills have contracted to export of nine lakh tons of sugar, of which seven lakh tons have already been moved from the sugar mills.
