Reuters was first to report that India is expected to withdraw sugar export subsidies from the new season beginning in October, as a sharp rise in global prices makes it easier for Indian mills to sell the sweetener on the world market. India, the world’s biggest sugar producer after Brazil, encouraged overseas sales for three years in a row, helping New Delhi emerge as a significant, stable exporter of the commodity. Benchmark prices in New York touched a 4 1/2-year high. A day later, trade and industry officials told Reuters that India could export 6 million tonnes of sugar in the new 2021-22 season even without government subsidies, thanks to rising international prices.
