Topics

Lower polarity rates in the last two harvest seasons and unchanged sugar quotas led to a substantial increase in sugar imports in 2015. Eventually, total sugar quota increased six percent in MY 2016/17 where total beet sugar quota is announced as 2.5 MMT and the starch based sugar quota is 265,000 MT. As a result of the increase in quotas, Turkey’s sugar beet plantation is expected to increase twenty five percent in MY 2016/17 and the sugar production is expected to be 2.5 MMT.
