Year-Round Availability: Center Considers Sugar Stock Declaration

  • To ensure continuous availability throughout the year, the center may implement a requirement for sugar stock declaration.
  • The government is exploring a system to compel mills, stockists, and wholesalers to declare their sugar stocks, aiming to guarantee ample availability in collaboration with the States.
  • This initiative comes in response to anticipated lower production, surpassing consumption levels.
  • In a directive issued by the Food Ministry in September, sugar mills were instructed to provide monthly details of sugar sales.
  • This measure aims to compile comprehensive data on stock levels among traders, dealers, wholesalers, large retail chains, and processors, ensuring abundant availability at reasonable prices.
