On Monday, sugar prices rallied to a fresh 3-3/4 year nearest-futures high on concern about smaller global supplies continuing to fuel fund buying of sugar futures. According to reports the current shipping delays in Brazil for its soybean exports may curb global sugar supplies since the queue of vessels waiting at Brazilian ports are so large that bottlenecks are likely to continue until May when sugar is normally the biggest crop for export. The outlook for excessive rain in Brazil’s sugar-producing regions and signs of smaller sugar exports from India are other supporting factors for sugar prices. Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) said last week that India’s sugar mills have only contracted 2.5 MMT of sugar exports this year, below the Government’s export target of 6 MMT on a shortage of shipping containers.
