As of Jul. 17, Mexico’s 2020/21 sugar production reached 5.713 MMT, up 8 percent from production a year prior of 5.278 MMT. Higher harvest area and sugar tonnage per hectare, 64.9 MT vs. 62.9 a year prior, have helped bolster sugar output. Sugar yield is slightly higher, too, 11.1 percent vs. 10.7 percent last season.
Cumulative production includes 3.410 MMT of estandar, 1.348 MMT of refined, and 0.183 MMT of blanco especial. Production of sugar with polarity below 99.2 percent, as mandated for export under Mexico-U.S. trade agreements, reached 0.736 MMT, up from 0.715 MMT last season.
As of last report, only one mill was still crushing, Beta San Miguel’s San Rafael de Pucte in the Yucatan Peninsula state of Quintana Roo.
