During the 2012-13 harvest, the sugar industry exported 400 thousand tons of grain, 160 thousand tons more than in the previous one. However, the value of sales did not behave the same as the volume exported, because revenues were between $210 million and $220 million, similar to the amount in the last harvest.

"For the 2013-14 sugar harvest the sector projected selling about 480 thousand tons of sugar abroad," said Mario Amador, general manager of the National Committee of Sugar Producers (CNPA).

"Two ships have already set sail bound for Venezuela and the production and export process is in full swing," he added.
