International Market: According to reports, on Friday Sugar prices moved lower with NY sugar at a 1-1/2 week low and London sugar at a 6-week low on ample supplies and suspect demand. Sugar supplies are abundant after UNICA reported that Brazil’s Center-South sugar production in the second half of June rose +23.3% y/y to 2.728 MMT, with the percentage of cane used for sugar climbing to 47.42% in 2020/21 from 37.06% in 2019/20. On the positive side, Unica also reported that total exports of ethanol by Brazil Center-South mills in June rose +44% y/y to 267 mln liters, which indicates pressure for less sugar production and more ethanol production. The overall sugar demand picture is bearish for sugar prices. Losses in sugar were limited Friday on a +2% rally in crude prices. Higher crude oil prices are positive for ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing to ethanol production rather than sugar production, thus curbing sugar supplies.
London White Sugar front month contract is trading at $342.90/tn, whereas US Sugar front month contract is trading at 11.69/lb at the time of writing this update.
