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.
