Uganda Says 'No' to Selling Surplus Cane to Kenya, an Industrial Info Market Brief
Industry Segment: Market Brief | Word Count: 113 Words
An export request for 500,000 tons of sugar cane to Kenya has been declined by the Ugandan government. According to the Ministry for Trade, Industry and Co-operatives, the sugar mills have been under-producing due to a cane shortage since 2010, and opening up to the Kenyan market could dent the domestic sugar industry. The millers in Uganda have the capability of crushing 650 million tons of sugar cane and are operating at about 70% capacity.
