Changes In The Sugar Industry
Due to the rise in the global prices of sugar, several sugar mills have been renegotiating their pre-agreed export contracts to command higher prices for sugar exports. Stocks of sugar companies also jumped up by 20% on the back of hope that the GOI would enhance the export quota after the numbers projected in the domestic production assessment in the month of January’23.
The changes in guidelines in the past instilled a selling of quotas to some of the most prominent exporters which drove out small exporters but the recent changes in the guidelines have brought in favorable changes in the market which can be seen by the present number of exports.
