The unfavourable weather in the Philippines would affect the sugar output and the country would miss the earlier forecast for the crop year that will end in August 2022, reports Bloomberg.

The Sugar Regulatory Administration stated on Friday stating that the sugar output was 1.8 million metric tonnes till mid-June. The super typhoon impact in December and the La Nina weather condition have affected the sugar production in the country.

The Philippines government in February had decided to import 200,000 metric tons of sugar as the current crop yield was estimated to reach 2.072 million metric tons, lower than the original forecast.

The agency stated that the fluctuations in the climate and bad weather conditions have affected the sugar production in the country.
