Zimbabwe has adequate sugar stocks – industry

Capitalk Reporter/ Chronicle |  1 month ago | local

Zimbabwe Sugar Association says the country has adequate sugar stocks for the local market

as the industry has been operating smoothly without any interruptions in its production chain.

In response to reports claiming that there is a looming shortage of sugar due to the suspension

of production by the country’s leading producer, Tongaat Hulett, the association said it does

not expect any disturbances to sugarcane farming, sugar production, or distribution logistics

which are currently in place.

In a statement, Zimbabwe Sugar Association chairman Mr. Muchadeyi Masunda said the

association wishes to advise all its valid stakeholders that these reports are unfounded and


Mr. Masunda said there are adequate stocks of all types of sugar within the country following

the successful resumption of the milling season in April 2022.

The association said it remains committed to producing enough sugar for the local market.
