‘All-B’ sugar allocation needed – Confed prexy

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN      

The Confederation of Sugar Producers Association said yesterday that the sugar industry needs to have an “all-B” domestic sugar allocation, with production estimate of the Sugar Industry Administration projected at 2.099 million tons, for crop year 2021-2022.

Confed president Raymond Montinola said the low sugar production estimate is due to the anticipated La Niña atmospheric phenomenon.

This position is based on the SRA production estimates, considering a double La Niña, as the output of SRA summary, where the rainfall forecast of Pagasa from August 2021 to January 2022, indicates a similar condition of rainfall as of CY 2020-2021, Montinola said in a statement issued by Confed.

He added that above normal rainfall is forecast over the country for the months of November 2021 to January 2022, that is the maturity stage for most of the sugarcane crops.

Montinola said their recommendation is for the best interest of the consuming public.

“By having a sustainable supply of domestic sugar as an agriculture product for our countrymen as an industry, we are able to provide food security,” he added.*
