Ukraine - Sugar, annual report
April 26, 2011
USDA/FAS GAIN report UP 1111
For the past two growing seasons sugar beets have increased in acreage. In the current MY beet production is expected to go up by 23% by volume over last year. Large land holdings have continued consolidating land for beet production and reopening old facilities for refining sugar. Ukraine imports sugar under TRQs; the licensing and distribution of permits to import are handled by the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade. Ukraine can import duty free sugar from Belarus, but the price is controlled to protect Ukraine‟s domestic production.
