Jakarta: Indonesia is mulling to revise sugar import rules by increasing the purity of its raw sugar, informed Indrasari Wisnu Wardhana, the foreign trade director-general of Trade ministry.
As per current rule in the country, raw sugar must have at least an ICUMSA purity level of 1200 to get considered for import. According to the Wardhana, ICUMSA level will be lowered to 600.
The lower ICUMSA level indicates that it is of high sugar purity. The timeline to implement revision has not yet set, Wardhana said.
According to the news report published in Reuters, the sugar exporters from India have asked the country to revise the rule for import as India no more produces ICUMSA-1,200 sugar.
