El Salvador Concedes its EU Sugar Quota

Nicaragua is able to sell 10,163 metric tons duty free to the EU.

Monday, October 21, 2013

Altogether, the Central America's total export quota adds up to 150,000 tons.

Mario Salaverria, president of the Sugar Association of El Salvador said the decision to sell the sugar was due to "uncertainty about the problem they had with Italy and that delivery times won't allow them to make the most of this access."

"The decision, which according Salaverría was taken in mid-September, only includes the quota this year, as in January or February they hope to ship 24,800 metric tons of sugar to the EU, a total of 400 tons more than this year due to annual growth of the share." noted an article Laprensagrafica.com
