Jamaica: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JM2021-0004

Jamaican total sugar production for MY 2020/2021 was 43,946 MT, a decrease from 60,000 MT produced in MY 2019/2020. As sugar production in Jamaica continues to decline, Post projects approximately 42,000 MT will be produced in MY 2021/2022. High input costs, antiquated machinery, and labor issues are some of the factors that account for declining sugar production in recent years. Despite the reduced production, Post expects Jamaica to meet its tariff rate quota to the United States and satisfy local and regional market demands in MY 2021/2022.
