In order to efficiently manage the coordination and arrangements for the ISO Mid-Year Meeting 2024, a dedicated committee has been formed. The committee’s composition is as follows:

India holds a significant position in the global sugar landscape, being the largest consumer and the second-largest producer of sugar worldwide. With a 15% share in global sugar consumption and contributing to around 20% of the total sugar production, Indian sugar trends have a profound impact on global markets. Given this leading role, India emerges as the most fitting nation to lead the ISO, the apex international body overseeing sugar and related products, with approximately 90 member countries.
