Sugar output in Gujarat at 1.6L tonnes till Nov

Ahmedabad: With sugarcane crushing progressing well, cooperative sugar mills across Gujarat produced 1.66 lakh tonnes of sugar as of November 30, 2021, shows data compiled by the Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA).

The operational sugar factories produced 1.65 lakh tonnes of sugar in the same period last year, ISMA data further shows.
“Sugarcane crushing in Gujarat is progressing well. Sugar production is expected to rise 10% this season due to higher sugarcane acreage,” said a source in Gujarat State Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories (GSFCSF).
Sugar production, according to GSFCSF estimates, is expected to rise to 11.29 lakh tonnes in the 2021-22 season from around 10 lakh tonnes in 2020-21. Increased production of sugarcane is going to push up production of the sweetener this year, said industry players.
The area under sugarcane cultivation in the state rose to 1.53 lakh hectares in 2021-22 from 1.27 lakh hectares the previous season. About 106 lakh tonnes of cane is expected to reach sugar factories this year against 98 lakh tonnes last year.
According to ISMA, 416 sugar mills produced 47.21 lakh tonnes of sugar as on November 30, this season as against 43.02 lakh tonnes by 409 mills in the corresponding period of the previous season.
