Production of cane sugar is reduced this month based on reduced output in Florida. In spite of this decrease, both U.S. cane sugar production and total U.S. sugar production remain at record highs. Beet sugar production is unchanged this month. Total supply is unchanged as the lower output is exactly offset by larger imports. High-tier imports are boosted with expectations that oversubscribed organic sugar imports will be imported with duty paid. Domestic deliveries are unchanged and on pace to reach the current projection. U.S. ending stocks are unchanged from last month, as is the resulting stocks-to-use ratio. There are no changes to Mexico’s supply and utilization figures this month.
