El Salvador: Sugar Annual
El Salvador's sugarcane planted area in 2014/2015 (Nov 2014-Oct 2015) is higher than in 2013/14 reaching 71,143 hectares (ha). The Salvadoran Sugar Council (CONSAA) continues to regulate sugar trade. In Marketing Year 2014, most sugar exports were destined for Canada, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, the Netherlands and to the U.S. re-export market. Favorable (but declining) international prices continue providing financial relief to the sugar sector. The law for production of alternative fuels, including ethanol, continues to be "on hold" and there is no set date for its entry into force.
