SUGAR CANE ___________________________________________________________________________

Sugar - Cane is a highly diversified resource, offering alternatives for the production of food, fiber, feed and energy.

Owing to climatic factors, sugar-cane is chiefly found in developing countries. Ghana, Tanzania, South Africa, Brazil, Zimbabwe, India, Mauritius and Zambia are example of countries where it is dominant.

Brazil is the world’s biggest producer and exporter of sugar.

India is the world’s largest sugar consuming country and swings from being a net exporter to importer depending on the size of its harvests.

Sugar-cane proffers one of the most cost-effective renewable resources among those renewable energy options that are readily available in developing countries.

This flexibility is valuable for producers where fluctuations in commodity prices and weather conditions affect the vulnerability of economies.

Sustainable growing of sugar-cane is highly dependant on aggregate rainfall, water supply, soil conditions and distance to the mill.


SUGAR REFINING __________________________________________________________________________

Raw sugar is grown in tropical countries where sugar can be grown profitably.

It is then refined at source or shipped in bulk to a refinery in the country where the sugar is required.

It now has to be finally cleaned up, purified and made ready for the consumer.

Sugar refining is a series of steps from left to right where color and non sugars are concentrating to the left and pure sugar is concentrating to the right. Raw sugar comes in to the left of the centre.
