Sao Paulo, Brazil: Focusing more on sugar production, mills in Brazil produced 3.02 million tonnes of sugar in the first half of July this year which is 55 per cent more as compared with the same period during last year.
The figures released by Unica, Sugar industry group said ethanol production fell 2.3 per cent in the period to 2.12 billion litres, while ethanol sales were 14 per cent below as the fuel market remains depressed by coronavirus-linked measures.
After coronavirus impacted the ethanol industry, sugar mills are diverting more cane towards sugar production. Due to which, sugar output increased massively in the country. Brazil comes second on a global tally of coronavirus cases after the United States.
