Self-sufficiency in sugar in Nigeria can affect Brazilian export


The Nigerian government plans to increase sugarcane plantation to achieve self-sufficiency in sugar production in the country by 2020.

The project created in 2013 by the government intends to increase local sugar to achieve self-sufficiency and reduce dependence on imports and create employment opportunities and increase ethanol production in the country.

Currently, over 90% of all sugar consumed in Nigeria is imported, mainly from Brazil, and refined by domestic refineries.

This initiative may have direct impact on the export market for Brazilian sugar next year.
