By the end of May 2019, EU sugar imports totaled more than 1,615,095 ttq: up 48% from the same period a year ago. This substantial increase is largely due to increased shipments from Ngwane (+146 kt), Brazil (+89 kt), Mozambique (+84 kt), Cuba (+63 kt) and Serbia (+63 kt) to Romania (+159 kt), Bulgaria (+76 kt), Croatia (+66 kt), Italy (+61 kt) and Poland (+52 kt) and despite a decrease in shipments destined to the UK (-47 kt). 

Additionally :

  • the proportion of raws for refining is on the rise, accounting for 47% of the total volume imported,
  • sugar volumes imported under IPR this season (367 kt) are already higher than volumes recorded for the entire 2017-18 season (312 kt) despite a sharp decrease in May 2019 (only 38 kt against 113 kt the previous month).
