Jamaica: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

For Marketing Year (MY) 2018/19, Post forecasts that 100,000 MT of raw sugar will be produced due to expected favorable weather conditions for sugar cane and stable or slightly increased production from each of the five operating factories. Post projects that Jamaica’s MY 2017/18 sugarcane production will also be 100,000 MT, an increase from the 88,000 MT produced during MY 2016/17, due to normal rainfall patterns and the availability of more sugar cane from fields that were not harvested in the previous crop. In MY 2017/18, Jamaica is expected to fulfill its U.S. sugar quota, supply all of its domestic raw sugar needs from its own production and continue exports to the European Union (EU), even though EU sugarcane prices have become less attractive due to policy changes.
