In 2019, it was understood that the EU open a “supplementary quota” of 180,000 tonnes of sugar at zero tariff, a quota of 450,000 tonnes of industrial ethanol and 250,000 tonnes of fuel ethanol. It was understood that these quotas would be phased in over five years and that sugar quota may somehow be linked to EU sugar consumption.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
