Ukraine is one of the three largest sugar beet exporters

Ukraine is one of the three largest sugar beet exporters.
In the current season, Ukraine increased sugar beet export by 6.6 times and entered the world's top three exporters. Ukrinform was informed about this in the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
if we take the figures for March inclusive, then Ukraine really increased exports by 6.6 times! Thus, we entered the top three exporters of mainly sugar beet, and in the general ranking ahead of us there are about seven countries that produce and export predominantly cane sugar. Nevertheless, this is a very rapid breakthrough, "- said the economist of the investment department of the FAO Andrei Yarmak.
The sugar industry brought to the Ukrainian budget $ 350 million of foreign exchange earnings. According to Yarmak, the export of sugar beet sugar also has problems, despite the increase in volumes. So the expert stresses that the price of domestic sugar is one of the lowest in the world. On the one hand, this gives Ukrainian products a competitive advantage, but on the other, illustrates the fact that Ukraine is not yet ready to add value to the goods.
