Press service of "Ukrtsukor" reported that from September 2016 to July 2017 the country exported 752 thousand tons of sugar.
And although the time of sugaring has not yet ended, Ukrainian producers sold it in 6 times more products than in 2016. For the same period of 2015/2016, only 133.2 thousand tons were exported.
The head of the analytical department of "Ukrtsukor" Tatyana stressed that this is a big breakthrough. Agrarians reached a new, highest level and managed to master new markets not only in Europe, but also in the east, thanks to the excellent quality of sweet products and inexpensive cost.
Experts estimated that only in July 13,400 tons of sweet product were exported. The most sugar was purchased by Tajikistan - 4.2 thousand tons. Azerbaijan exported 2.9 thousand tons, Kyrgyzstan - 2.4 thousand tons, and Georgia - 2 thousand tons.
Further supplies will be minimal, because world prices for sugar are low, despite the high demand. And the agrarians are actively preparing the technique and the soil for the new season.
Experts say that in 2017/2018 sugar production is planned in the same volumes as in 2016/2017 - 2 million tons. Ukraine consumes 1.5 million tons, and surpluses will again be exported.
