Sugar Prices Extend Weak Trend

Sugar prices disclosed a weak tendency at the wholesale market in the national capital during the week under review on soaring stocks amid limited offtake by stockists and bulk consumers, registering another loss of up to Rs 40 per quintal.
Marketmen said bloated stocks in the market on non stop supplies from mills due to record production, triggered by need base buying by stockist and bulk consumers, mainly held sweetener prices in negative territory for the fourth straight week.
Sugar production is estimated to reach a record 32.25 million tonne in the current 2017-18 marketing year (October-September), which especially drove the selling in sweetener prices.
