Cairo, Egypt: According to the Reuters, head of the agriculture ministry’s sugar crop council said, “Egypt aims to import 400,000-500,000 tonnes of sugar in 2021.”

The country has temporarily banned sugar import to protect the local sugar industry. The ban may be modified if the trade and supply ministers approve the proposal.

The Egyptian Sugar and Integrated Industries Company (ESIIC), the state-owned buyer has recently floated a tender to buy 50,000 tonne Brazilian raw sugar.
