Sugar leaders alarmed,
calling for C allocation


The National Federation of Sugarcane Planters and the Confederation of Sugar Producers Association are calling on the Sugar Regulatory Administration to immediately allocate a portion of the country’s current sugar supply as “C”, or reserve, because of an upsurge in production and a drop in millgate prices to below P1,300 per Lkg.

Rafael Coscolluela, CONFED national president, said the allocation of “C” sugar is needed because of “a worrisome drop in sugar prices over the past several weeks, as well as the possibility of a further drop starting January 2013 due to the reduction in tariff on imported sugar to 18 percent and high inventory levels from January to May 2013, which are the peak milling months.”

SRA Administrator Ma. Regina Bautista Martin said that, as soon as she gets an estimate on production for this crop year, she will decide on whether or not to revise current sugar allocations.moremoremore
