Sugarcane is the world’s largest crop. It is cultivated on about 23.8 million hectares, in more than 90 countries, with a worldwide harvest of over 1.7 billion tonnes. Sugar is, for the most part, considered to be one of the most volatile of agricultural commodities. Our proactive and hands on approach has allowed us to effectively work together with our suppliers and buyers anticipating and quickly responding to shifting market conditions.
