Delta Sugar, the mill owned by the Egypt government is estimated to produce 330,000 tonnes of sugar this season. The mill is expected to harvest 2.3 million tonnes of beet this season. The information has been released by the Supply ministry on Saturday.
According to the government sources, from the last few years, the Delta Sugar is focusing on increasing sugar output using sugar beet as the sugar beet is consuming less water as compared to that of sugarcane. The country is facing water scarcity and the sugarcane is grown on the banks of the Nile River.
