Increased Sugar Production May Force GOI To Allow Additional Sugar Export Quota In January
Located in Asia, India is the largest sugar producer in the world, and the Asian nation ranks second, behind Brazil in terms of exports of sugar. The Indian Government may consider raising the Sugar Exporter quota for the 2022-23 fiscal year in January after the December’22 production figures are out.
India exported a record 111 lakh tonnes of sugar in 2021-22. The marketing year for sugar starts in October and ends in September.

As per the industry body ISMA’s information, India’s sugar production in the October-December quarter of the current marketing year increased by 3.69% to 120.7 lakh tonnes.
India’s sugar production was 116.4 lakh tonnes during the same period in the previous marketing year. The Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) reported that around 509 mills are involved in the crushing process as against 500 mills in the same period last year.
ISMA reported in a statement that in the October-December period of the 2022-23 marketing year,
