Holidays, polls to drive
sugar prices up - SRA

Sugar Regulatory Administration chief Ma. Regina Bautista Martin yesterday said sugar prices in the domestic market rose to a high of P1,475.18 per Lkg last week from P1,330 previously, in probable anticipation of the upcoming holidays and the campaign period.

The prices may have gone up because market forces are seeking to stabilize at their own level, she said.

Also, traders are probably preparing for sugar needs for All Souls Day when buying becomes heavy, Martin said.moremoremore
